Diversity Initiatives

Kansas State University Polytechnic Campus strives to continuously provide its students, faculty, and staff with opportunities to develop attitudes and skills necessary to succeed in a diverse and interdependent world.  The College actively seeks to (1) expand academic opportunities for students from under-represented groups, (2) expand opportunities for international experience to prepare graduates for careers in today’s global atmosphere, and (3) enhance the overall level of diversity within the faculty, staff and student body.

Diversity includes appreciation and respect to individual as well as group characteristics defined by such factors as age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic, educational attainment, profession, marital status, parental status, intellectual ability, geography of origin, and personality.  Diversity is about embracing, respecting, and celebrating the differences that make each one of us an essential contributor for the betterment of society.
