COVID-19 Information for Researchers
Our philosophy is that all members of our research community — faculty, students and staff — are valued, and we continue to work with them to ensure that their health and safety are foremost in our activities on and off campus.
Most faculty and staff submitted research operating proceedures, or reawakening plans, this past spring to operate their programs and projects according to CDC, state, county and university guidance. As that guidance changes or is refined over time, we encourage everyone involved in the research enterprise at K-State to review your individual research plans and refine or update them as necessary.
As the situation with our campus needs updating, our office will hold regular brown bag webinars to provide information and respond to questions as needed. Please see Research Weekly and our calendar for updates. For immediate assistance with questions, please contact Dr. Beth Montelone, Senior Assoc. V. P. for research.

At the Forefront of Inquiry
At Kansas State University, we believe research is more than labs and statistics — it's knowing the right questions to ask. Our expert faculty conduct crucial research in the university's more than 90 research centers. In addition, K-State will work hand-in-hand with the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility, or NBAF, which is being constructed at the university by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Our research efforts bring in more than $150 million a year annually, allowing us to be at the forefront of discovery in areas such as global food systems.
As K-State works toward becoming a Top 50 public research university by 2025, it will remain critical to support, encourage and grow the research efforts of our faculty, staff and students.
