How we benefit Kansas
K-State Research and Extension serves as the front door to Kansas State University, the state’s land-grant university. We provide trusted, practical education to help individuals, businesses and communities solve problems, develop skills and build a better future.
The College of Agriculture prepares students for productive lives that contribute to agriculture, society and the economic competitiveness of Kansas.
Our statewide network encompasses faculty at three campuses, extension professionals in every county through our 16 districts and 60 county offices, and five research-extension centers. These educators share research-based information related to agriculture, youth development, family life, healthy living, business, economics and much more. We partner with local, state and federal agencies to help the agencies accomplish their goals. Our vision is to be a top-five college of agriculture and a global destination for education, research and extension.
This report highlights the work we are doing in research and extension to develop healthy communities, families and youth, as well as a sustainable, competitive agricultural system.
