Next-gen K-State

A strategic plan that builds upon our success and shapes our future as we strive to become the next-generation land-grant university.

President Linton

Charting our future together

Dear K-State Community,

I am excited to formally launch Next-Gen K-State, our university-wide strategic planning initiative to define our future as a Next-Generation Land-Grant University.

We have made great progress since announcing this initiative in May 2022. Over the past several months, we have built out a framework and timeline to guide a comprehensive planning process, which will heavily engage our K-State community — on campus and off campus — throughout the fall and spring semesters. Our students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, partners, friends and residents of Kansas are all key stakeholders in this work and their perspectives that will be invaluable as we work together to shape our future.
