Regional community visits

The university for the people of Kansas

As the nation's first operational land-grant university, we care deeply about Kansans and their communities. And there is no better way for Kansas State University to demonstrate our commitment to Kansans than through intentional visits across our state.

K-State - The university for Kansans

Visit schedule

During academic year 2022-2023, we visited nine communities throughout the state of Kansas to listen and learn from the people who live there.

See the communities we visited.

Fostering connections and building relationships

K-State's regional community visits will help to shape K-State's new strategic plan to become a next-generation land-grant university. These regional community visits will serve as an important first step in how K-State engages Kansans through this planning process and how the university listens to communities throughout the state about the future of K-State.
