In a world focused on things, we focus first on PEOPLE.
We want to welcome you to the College of Human Ecology at Kansas State University, whether you are a prospective student, a current K-Stater, a parent or someone who needs expertise we can provide. The mission of the college is to discover, disseminate and apply knowledge to meet basic human needs and improve the human condition.
What is human ecology?
It's about us. Humans. What we need to be physically and emotionally healthy. How we care for our children, our elders, our families. How we design our living and working spaces. How we feed and clothe ourselves. How we gather and celebrate. How we keep our bodies healthy and strong. Basically, anything that helps people lead better lives is human ecology. It's a varied field with a rich history and a fantastic future.
