Supporting the President's Excellence Fund
A letter from the president
It happens every August: After the quiet of summer, the campus suddenly comes alive with students. There are more voices in the hallways and more laughter overheard as you walk across campus. There’s a palpable sense of excitement that can only come from students arriving at K-State — as student have for more than 150 years — with hopes of realizing their dreams and goals.
And they are not the only ones invigorated by the coming of fall. Regardless of what happens with state funding, we remain inspired and eager to reach our own goal as a university: to be recognized as a top 50 public research university by 2025. Building on our history as a public land-grant institution, we have charted a course to help us achieve our goal, and we are excited to reach it.
Philanthropic support is key to moving forward with our plans. Your gift to the President’s Excellence Fund allows us to ensure that our long tradition as a public research university is preserved and enhanced to a top 50 level nationally. Last year, because of contributions to this fund, we were able to focus resources on some key benchmarks of 2025: faculty retention and support for our talented students.
Just like our students, we are making great progress toward our goal. If you are inspired by what’s happening at K-State today, will you join us by making a contribution? Your gift will make an immediate impact and will ensure our success this year. Make a gift online here.
With purple pride,
