A gift from Greg and Mamie Case is helping tomorrow's risk management leaders.
Through the Innovation and Inspiration Campaign, we will raise $100 million for the College of Arts and Sciences in support of our 2025 goals and to further benefit five areas: student success, faculty development, programmatic support, facility enhancement and excellence funding to support emerging needs.
Scholarship support, both for immediate use and for endowment, is one of the highest priorities for the college and is a key benchmark for reaching out 2025 goals. A quality education extends beyond the classroom, and scholarships will help students participate in professional organizations, meetings, conferences and study abroad that will ultimately enhance their ability to make a difference, which is a hallmark of a top 50 public research university.
Faculty are the heart of our college. They are caring mentors, deeply committed to the success of undergraduate and graduate students. They are acclaimed scholars who are known for interdisciplinary research contributions to their fields. They are internationally known artists and performers. They are determined and creative problem solvers taking on critical issues and applying practical solutions that improve lives on a global scale. They are leading K-State toward being a top 50 public research university by 2025. Your contributions will substantially strengthen our ability to recruit and retain outstanding faculty and will give them the tools they need to thrive.
The College of Arts and Sciences prepares students for careers in a rapidly changing workplace and for their roles as engaged citizens. Learning occurs not only in the classroom, but through special programming that supports focused career planning, enhances diversity and inclusion, supports our faculty-mentored starter-grant program and brings faculty and students together across disciplines to focus on larger, societal problems such as cancer research, the Konza Prairie, energy and the environment, and public health and infectious diseases. Your gifts are vital for new programming development or enhancement to advance teaching, research and outreach through these and other emerging programs,helping us reach our 2025 goals.
The K-State campus is being reshaped for the 21st century, which will set the stage for learning and will attract talented students and world-class faculty. Our new and remodeled facilities inspire learning, enable discovery, encourage collaboration and invite community involvement. They will give students and faculty access to the latest software and information, training equipment and high-tech classrooms that bring the world to Manhattan.
Excellence dollars allow the dean to advance teaching, research and outreach. Your gifts provide the resources to launch new fields of study and leverage the research strengths developed already. Excellence funds bring outstanding guest speakers and artists to campus and support our students and faculty going abroad to broaden not only their perspectives, but the perspectives of the world about Kansas. The flexibility to fund needs as they arise will help deans and department heads support the goals driving K-State to become a top 50 public research university by 2025.
