Welcome from Provost Taber

As the chief academic officer for Kansas State University, I live and breathe the shared ideals and core values that make K-State a vibrant and inclusive community of scholars. With a 150-year history as Kansas's land-grant research university, we have a rich tradition of academic excellence, discovery, and leadership that serves the aspirations of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the broader community. It is my privilege and pledge to ensure that our land grant mission, including teaching, research, extension, and community service, continues to be the touchstone for all we do. I invite you to explore the many opportunities that K-State has to offer across our nine academic colleges, the Libraries, Graduate School, Global Campus, our campuses at Salina and Olathe, and our extension offices across Kansas. As K-State's academic leader, it gives me great pride to offer my own Wildcat Welcome!

Charles S. Taber
Provost and Executive Vice President
