Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs
Beginning in the fall 1999 semester, Kansas State University initiated an Honor System based on personal integrity, which is presumed to be a sufficient assurance that, in academic matters, one's work is performed honestly and without unauthorized assistance.
K-State First is the University's first-year experience program, an integrated effort to create an outstanding college experience for every first-year student. K-State First supports four core programs for first-year students: CAT Communities, First-Year Seminars, KSBN: K-State Book Network (the university's common reading program), and GPS: Guide to Personal Success (a one-on-one mentoring program for new students).
Since its inception in 1997, the School of Leadership Studies strives to fulfill each part of its mission statement: developing knowledgeable, ethical, caring, inclusive leaders for a diverse and changing world.
Initiated in January 2006 and recently approved by Faculty Senate, this exciting opportunity for undergraduates is designed for students within each of the colleges in the university. The University Honors Program is a dynamic and vibrant part of the university community, providing exceptional students with exceptional experiences.
The Vice Provost for Information Technology Services provides leadership in the development of an information technology (IT) environment to support the teaching, research, and extension missions of Kansas State University.
