About International Programs
The Office of International Programs was established in 1991 to strengthen communication and coordination among K-State's many international programs, to achieve identified strategic planning goals for the university's further internationalization, and to provide a focal point for external international contacts and agreements. K-State is currently engaged in over 50 exchange programs with foreign institutions around the globe.
