Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Inquiry

Pioneers in Cutting Edge Exploration

The Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Inquiry serves an interdisciplinary community. We encourage undergraduate students and faculty to engage in inquiry because whether a scientist, a business woman or an artist, a cutting edge history is our K-State tradition!

Mission

Traditions

As the first land-grant college created under the Morrill Act and the oldest public university in the state of Kansas, Kansas State University has a long tradition of pioneering spirit. Since its earliest days when both men and women were welcomed into the K-State family, the institution has pioneered the most cutting edge ideas of our time.
