Building Leading-Edge Facilities
Facilities will build teams and partnerships to enhance how we serve our learners, generate groundbreaking discoveries and promote positive collaboration approaches across our K-State community.
Facilities Made for an Interdisciplinary Focus
This project’s facilities — both in configuration and functionality — will capitalize on collaboration between university scientists and engaged agriculture and related companies and partners. Beyond focused efforts on cutting-edge research and industry-changing products and solutions within K-State’s top-ranked College of Agriculture, the innovation centers will draw the brightest minds from the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, Engineering, Health and Human Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine, bringing One K-State to life to catalyze interdisciplinary teaching, learning and research.
“We've been talking about it for so long; it's just extremely exciting. When President Linton came, he really made it an initiative to work with the College of Ag, work with the State of Kansas and really work with us as an alumni base to get this moving forward,” said Troy Anderson, vice president of operations at Ardent Mills. “Here on campus, we've got a nice, shiny new business building, a nice, shiny architectural building, and a nice, shiny new engineering building. That's what attracts specifically those that don't come from an ag background. We need that in the College of Agriculture here at Kansas State not only to continue to attract students but to grow diversity so that we can have the most diverse, most thought-provoking student body and faculty that we can to continue to keep Kansas State world-class in everything we do.”
Invitation to invest
Now is the time to invest — Kansas State University has an inspiring opportunity. To help the world’s ability to feed two billion more people by 2050. To contribute to a Kansas economy that thrives. To optimize agriculture for the highest levels of efficiency and yield. The sky’s the limit.
