Kansas State University employees take pride in making a difference in nearly 21,000 lives at the nation's first operational land-grant university. In fact, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities recently designated K-State as an Innovation and Economic Prosperity University. As the Princeton Review's No. 3 university in the nation for quality of life, K-State also takes pride in its employees. K-State was also ranked No. 3 in Forbes - America's Best Employers by State. Beyond offering an unmatched sense of community and inclusiveness, K-State provides employees with a variety of benefits, including health care, retirement options, discounted event tickets and much more.
Of course, our employees also are members of the Manhattan community, Livability.com's #16 place to live in the nation, featuring eclectic restaurants, a treasure trove of shopping and, of course, plenty of purple.
