Student Belonging and Inclusion

Building an inclusive campus climate

Welcome to Student Belonging and Inclusion

Fostering mutual understanding among diverse groups helps create a campus atmosphere where every student feels they belong. Meet new people and celebrate your unique identity. Attend events and gain access to resources designed to help you thrive.

As part of the Division of Academic Success and Student Affairs (DASSA), we work to provide an impactful and holistic K-State experience by closely aligning student life resources with academic support programs and services. SBI partners across all sectors of the university to foster an atmosphere in which all students are supported, celebrated, and included.
