Ways To Engage


Learning beyond the classroom- Offers students and faculty the chance to learn while creating real-world value in the privarte and public sectors. Examples ongoing at K-State include:

  • Natural Resources and Environmental Science secondary major capstone courses work with community partners on applied ecological projects.
  • All students in the College of Architecture, Planning and Design complete engaged projects during their degrees. These degree programs culminate in a final master’s project—most are community based.
  • K-State participates in a variety of public-facing Centers, including the Kansas City Design Center http://www.kcdesigncenter.org/
  • Many degree programs include internships and practicums within their curricula.

Working collaboratively with partners on issues affecting the well-being of Kansans and beyond. This is underpinned by relevance, reciprocity, participation and sustainability to ensure a mutual symmetrical relationship and benefit.
