Our Priorities

We must reimagine everything about how we educate and prepare learners — broadly challenging ourselves to move nimbly beyond our traditional approaches and lean into a culture of disruption, agility and change.

We must establish a foundation that enables us to grow our next-generation land-grant workforce, inclusive of a common culture, systems and structures that value, incentivize, recognize and empower faculty and staff.

We must take an already strong student experience and make it even stronger — empowering students with support and experiences that position them for immediate and lifelong success.

We must transform how we carry out our research mission in an integrated, interdisciplinary way — from our focus areas and culture to strategically building capacity through structures, resources and people.

We must maximize the impact of our engagement, outreach and Extension services — fully leveraging and elevating engagement as the third co-equal pillar of our land-grant mission.

We must focus on business development, job creation and unique partnerships that drive economic prosperity, impact and growth in Kansas and beyond.

We must ask ourselves at all times, in a way that guides all decisions, "what is best for K-State?
