The deadline for applications and submission of materials for the K-State Excellence in Engagement awards is Feb. 1. An announcement of two awards will be made Feb. 15.

Established in 2011 by the Office of Provost, the Kansas State University Excellence in Engagement awards are given to highlight excellence in engaged scholarship via research, teaching or outreach. These awards recognize Kansas State Research and Extension and campus faculty initiatives that demonstrate innovative or sustained efforts in university/community engagement positively impacting both university and community partners.

By engagement, we mean "A form of research, teaching or service in which collaborative efforts between university and community stakeholders result in scholarly activity and community benefit around a public issue."
