Support for facilities
When we think of facilities, we think of buildings, but the modern campus environment encompasses more than limestone and mortar. As K-State looks toward its Vision 2025 strategic goal to become a top 50 research institution by 2025, facilities and infrastructure is a key theme. Creating a learning environment that fosters lively intellectual and social interaction provides numerous opportunities for donors to support new or revitalized buildings and laboratories and technology enhancements.
Philanthropic support for our campus facilities will help K-State ensure that our campuses are true assets in recruiting and retaining quality students, faculty, researchers and staff. New and revitalized space does more than add to the beauty and functionality of our campuses — it creates a sense of pride and a home for the programs that improve our capacity to promote learning and discovery.
