2022 Top Employer Badge

Kansas State University has been named a 2022 Top Employer by DiversityJobs.com for a third consecutive year.

The distinction was given to the university because of its dedication and commitment to building a diverse workforce and culture. DiversityJobs.com recognizes that K-State has a proven dedication to diversity outreach. DiversityJobs.com has hundreds of university clients, but only 66 have been named a top employer in education for 2022. Kansas State University is the only higher education institution in the state of Kansas to be named a top employer. 

"This recognition speaks to the diligent efforts of many people here at K-State to target our position advertising dollars and our candidate outreach in places that bring us the most diverse, skilled talent we can find," said Jay Stephens, vice president for Human Capital Services. "It also recognizes the tremendous effort of so many partners on our campus to foster a true sense of belonging and make real progress toward a more inclusive K-State."

Be Stoney, interim chief diversity and inclusion officer, said, "K-State has continuously made progress in hiring a diverse workforce. We have been a direct agency for hiring a diverse workforce that is competitive and will continue to engage in developing an inclusive and welcoming culture. K-State is a strong proponent in hiring a more diverse workforce, particularly one that will reflect our student, staff and faculty population."
