K-State Research and Extension

How we benefit Kansas

From the Dean and Director

K-State Research and Extension represents Kansas State University, the state’s land-grant university. We provide trusted, practical information to help individuals, businesses and communities solve problems, develop skills and build a better future.

Ernie MintonWe share unbiased, research-based information through multiple channels:

  • Events across the state and on campus
  • Publications, radio, videos and news releases
  • Social media, webinars and websites

We also multiply our resources by training youth and adult leaders, as well as volunteers, and partnering with state and local agencies.

The College of Agriculture prepares students for productive lives that contribute to agriculture, society and the economic competitiveness of Kansas. Our students work alongside top scientists in labs, fields and greenhouses and participate in numerous leadership, internship and international-study opportunities.

Our vision is to be a Top 5 college of agriculture and a global destination for education, research and extension. Four times a year, we send the Statewide e-newsletter with links to this website highlighting examples of how we contribute to healthy communities, families and youth, as well as a sustainable, competitive agricultural system.
