Engage with the Planning Process
We want to hear from you! Our Next-Gen K-State strategic planning process is designed to focus heavily on engaging all members of our K-State community.
- Provide your feedback by January 20, 2023 on the draft K-State vision and values statements. Our vision and values will guide us as we chart our future as a next-generation land-grant university.
- Review the compiled research report and the individual survey reports with the inputs and suggestions received during fall 2022 from thousands of K-Staters through more than 60 listening sessions and online surveys from students, faculty and staff, alumni, parents and other family members, and employers. The collected research will inform our next phases of strategic planning. Thank you to all who took the time to participate in a session or complete a survey.
- Join us for one of our community forums at an upcoming regional community visit. See a full schedule of these visits and events.
- Send questions, comments, or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Building on our foundation as the nation's first operational land-grant university, Kansas State University will once again lead the way as the next-generation land-grant university – operating as a future-focused, inclusive and connected community that inspires discovery, creates prosperity, impacts society, and transforms lives within Kansas and beyond.
As we face new and increasingly complex challenges, we look to our values and principles of community as enduring and uniting hallmarks of how we fulfill our land-grant mission – both in serving all throughout the state of Kansas and impacting the world.
Our values serve as a framework for how we make decisions, how we build relationships, how we use our resources and how we innovate for the future.
We are stronger and more resilient together — cultivating enduring relationships that foster an inclusive culture of solidarity and bind our broad K-State community.
We lead with bold conviction — rising to the moment, even when the course is uncharted.
We work with purpose — compounding our collective strengths to deliver the greatest good for areas of greatest need.
We welcome all who seek to learn and grow — providing an experience that promises unconditional commitment and unlimited potential.
We are everything because of our people — striving to support, inspire and positively impact every life we touch and driving an unwavering sense of belonging across our K-State community.
We listen, adapt and challenge the status quo – pioneering change through learning and discovery that transforms lives and creates shared prosperity for all.
