The IMOHTEP initiative, named after the celebrated ancient Egyptian scholar, encourages cultural engagement and community uplift, persistence and support, retention, degree completion and career/graduate school placement among the targeted demographic.

With the guidance of a faculty or staff mentor and student peer leaders, IMHOTEP participants assess long- and short-term personal and professional goals while learning the importance of community and political action and gaining a broad understanding of their intersecting cultural identities.

The Office of Diversity is committed to promoting diversity in every sector of Kansas State University. The office provides vision and leadership in diversifying all university functions as well as students, faculty, staff and the curriculum.
