A Better K-State, A Better World
From the Dean and Director
Our Future is Now
Kansas State University’s College of Agriculture is regarded as one of the best in the nation, if not the world. We have an exceptionally talented mix of faculty and students who choose to study with or work for us to explore the opportunities to grow and expand this diverse industry. Our enthusiasm, experience and expertise are sought after by private industry, trade associations and global partners to help examine and solve challenges that impact all of us – such as drought or food shortages. Indeed, it is humbling to lead an organization that touches so many lives, in so many ways.

Investing to Meet the Complex Opportunities and Challenges of Agriculture
The College of Agriculture will soon begin construction on three facilities equipped with the latest research technology and space, which officials say will provide the maximum potential for education, interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation.
The new buildings will advance K-State as a global hub for agriculture-related learning and research, while launching Kansas' economy to new levels.

20 Years of Building Bridges
Zelia Wiley reflects on two decades at K-State.
As a precocious and inquisitive teenager rigorously studying at the High School for Engineering Professionals at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Fort Worth, Texas, Zelia Wiley knew she was preparing herself to be a problem solver, possibly even a bridge builder. She just didn’t know that this would be a much more figurative statement, rather than a literal one, when defining her successful professional career.
Building a Pathway
Agriculture can be the intersection of academic and professional development
Many Kansans and graduates know K-State for its love of community and “heart,” but for California native Lola Plum, K-State's College of Agriculture is also literally serving as a springboard for a career as a cardiothoracic surgeon.
