Academic Success and Student Affairs Initiatives

Active Initiatives

Academic Success and Student Affairs is working within our reporting units and collaborating across the university on initiatives that support students' success at K-State and beyond.


Action Plan for a More Inclusive K-State

Recent national events and #BlackAtKState bring into clear focus how much work needs to be done to address racial and socil injustice issues at our university. Developing meaningful, measurable action plans with concrete steps will propel us forward together.

Community of Connection

The Community of Connection Project is a searchable database of opportunities across the university that are intentionally intended for students from historically underrepresented groups.

Culture of Respect Collective

K-State has joined a group of 21 colleges and universities from across North America for the sixth cohort of NASPA's Culture of Respect Collective program. The Collective is an ambitious two-year program dedicated to helping end campus sexual violence that guides cohort institutes through a rigorous process of self-assessment and targeted organizations change.

Graduate Assistantships

Departments and offices across the university seek qualified graduate assistants in a variety of student affairs positions. View open positions on the Coordinated Graduate Assistantships webpage.

JED Campus

To help us create a healthier and safer university, we've partnered with the JED Foundation, which operates the JED Campus Initiative to assess current university programs and look for ways to enhance a school's mental health and suicide prevention systems, programs, and policies.

K-State Student Success Playbook

Prepared by the National Institute for Student Success, the playbook outlines priorities for standardizing advising protocols and technology to deliver proactive, consistent and data-informed advising across the university, and aligning K-State's advising model with national best practices.
