Kansas State Polytechnic


Families have always been involved at K-State.The K-State Parents and Family Association is a way to formalize the connection between K-State and the families of our students.

The association allows families to feel actively engaged with their students’ college experience by participating in campus programs and activities specifically geared towards families.

Family members can build or maintain a connection to the university by participating in student recruitment activities throughout Kansas and out of state, as well as raise funds to support scholarships and enhancements to student life at K-State.


The K-State Parents and Family Association is coordinated by an advisory board of volunteer leaders in cooperation with the Dean of Student Life and the KSU Foundation. Members of the volunteer committee meet to direct the work of the organization, establish priorities for the use of funds, and serve as a voice for K-State parents on issues pertinent to student life on our campus.
