President Linton shaking hands

Presidential Initiatives

Presidential initiatives ensure we are thinking about the future and finding innovative ways to reach our goals as a university community.

Initiatives that inspire

President Linton said it from day one: First you listen, which allows you to learn, and then you must move forward, putting what you have heard and learned into action. This informed and intentional leadership approach serves as the guiding force behind the development of presidential initiatives that forge the pathway to K-State's future.

Regional community visits

K-State is embarking upon a series of regional community visits to take place during the academic year, celebrating the university's partnership with communities across the state and creating a framework for reaffirming relationships, strengthening our Extension and Engagement networks, increasing student enrollment and putting our land-grant mission into action as we build better lives for Kansans.


Strategic planning

In July 2022, the university began a revitalized strategic planning process that inspires us to build upon the capacities, partnerships and accountability of K-State 2025 and moves us toward the Next-Generation Land-Grant University.
