Our Vision and Our Mission 

Vision: K-State dedicates itself to providing equitable access to an ever-more diverse and mutually inclusive public university. We build and enrich safe, respectful environments and learning communities that value our backgrounds and intersectionalities that contribute to the inherent dignity and growth of all.

Mission: At Kansas State University, diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging, in the broadest sense, reflect the idea that all community members are welcomed, valued and free to be their authentic selves. We strive to empower all members and remove barriers throughout our campus caused by social injustice and inequity to provide access to all regardless of identities. We commit ourselves to engaging the voices of our community to promote equity and empathy for a more inclusive K-State.
