    Since 1956 K-State has extended its outreach mandate to serve people throughout the world. Faculty members have participated in short-courses, technical assistance assignments, and sabbatical activities in India, Nigeria, the Philippines, Botswana, Honduras, and Pakistan. Many of these activities were through development projects funded by USAID, which focused on strengthening agricultural research and extension in universities and government ministries. As part of the Mid-America International Agricultural Consortium and several collaborative research support projects, faculty have also participated in projects in Peru, Morocco, Liberia, Egypt, Tunsia, and Kenya.

    Study tours and semester abroad programs offer Kansas students the opportunity for international experiences during their degree programs. In 1999 K-State students visited Mexico, Botswana, Kenya, Mongolia, Holland, and France. These experiences enhanced understanding of other cultures and improved foreign language skills, increasing the competitiveness of K-State students for jobs in the global economy. K-State is actively seeking additional opportunities for student and faculty international travel through educational partnerships with universities in other countries, private sector internships, and faculty collaborative research activities. Such international engagement enhances the relevance of campus teaching, provides for a more multi-ethnic local community, and benefits agriculture in this state.
