Established in 2012, the office of the vice provost for undergraduate studies supports undergraduate advising, undergraduate research, general education, first-year programs, nationally competitive scholarship advising, pre-law advising, the honors program, and the honor and integrity system.
Our objective is to enrich the undergraduate experience at Kansas State University by providing students a wealth of diverse learning opportunities that complement degree program requirements and that facilitate nationally recognized forms of undergraduate academic excellence.
The office of the vice provost for undergraduate studies serves as the strategic nexus for key academic support programs and university-wide initiatives designed to facilitate undergraduate students’ initial connection to university-level academic work. Our goal is help undergraduate students to define and achieve their intellectual ambitions. We advocate for undergraduate education in collaboration with students, faculty, schools and departments across the university.
