K-State Research and Extension

Grand Challenges

During a strategic planning process with our stakeholders, K-State Research and Extension identified five grand challenges facing every Kansan: global food systems, water, health, community vitality and developing tomorrow’s leaders. Our efforts in research and extension focus on addressing these challenges to help better our state, country and world.
