At the College of Health and Human Sciences at Kansas State University, we focus first on people. From the innate need for clothing and shelter to physical exercise and proper nutrition, to mental well-being, our students have dedicated their education to bettering the lives of people.
We inspire and prepare passionate and caring individuals for a meaningful life, and a career that promotes human well-being in the areas of business, design, teacher education, human behavior, and health sciences.
