Proximity to a major university with over 21,000 students means employers have the chance to build a seamless talent transition from student interns to full-time employees. Talent recruitment is a big challenge facing all businesses. Co-locating at K-State can give you the entry point you need to develop next-gen leaders.

Profitable Collaboration

The word “unique” is thrown around a lot when describing communities, but it’s accurate when talking about the town-gown relationship between K-State and the government entities, residents and businesses of the Greater Manhattan region.

With a shared attitude of “a rising tide raises all boats,” the university and the region have partnered for decades on multiple economic development projects including infrastructure, athletics, recruitment, marketing and new business development.

Currently, the north border of campus is the focus of a major city/university infrastructure project to accommodate ideal proximity to NBAF, the College of Veterinary Medicine, the Biosecurity Research Institute, and the K-State Office Park.
