Strategic Enrollment Management

As we continue the work outlined by the university's Strategic Enrollment Management (SEM) plan, we stay focused on the entire student journey and engagement with K-State, from recruitment and admissions, through the educational experience, through post-graduation. Key to our continued success is broad engagement from the K-State community, including students, faculty and staff.

As announced July 19, 2023, learn more about the new strategic enrollment management structural framework being put in place as part of the Next Gen K-State strategic planning initiative.
