It is the goal of HCS-Office of Institutional Equity to cultivate an inclusive campus culture that actively and intentionally engages diverse people, ideas, and perspectives to create a vibrant learning and working environment at Kansas State University. OIE will accomplish this by sustaining and advancing efforts to develop a pervasive culture of inclusion in all facets of life at Kansas State University.
By addressing concerns in a proactive way and challenging injustices, educating the community to understand the intrinsic value in developing workplace equity, and encouraging social and professional opportunities for unity and advancement, HCS-OIE can transform the campus culture into one in which all individuals draw strength from the University’s collective diversity. This transformation fosters success and a greater sense of belonging and respect (which ultimately promotes the University's goal of attracting and retaining diverse talent as we become a Nationally Ranked Top 50 Research University).
