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 the Manhattan and Olathe campuses, extension professionals in every county through our 17 districts and 57 county offices, plus personnel at strategically placed research-extension centers and experiment fields.
We partner with local, state and federal agencies to help the agencies accomplish their goals. Our vision is to be a Top 5 college of agriculture and a global destination for education, research and extension.
