Research labs are expensive to build and renovate, and decentralized space governance makes it difficult to maximize the value of existing space or streamline inefficient processes. Follow the steps in this Roadmap to collaborate with facilities, research, and academic leaders to develop a more proactive and integrated campus strategy for designing and managing research labs.

With amplified interest in growing partnerships with companies, universities must evaluate their current partnership strategy and seek new ways to diversify and deepen their industry engagements. Read our brief to learn how to develop a market-smart organizational design.
Low-income and working students, who are more likely to be students of color and first-generation students, are less likely to have the ability to pay the tuition and fees required, decreasing their likelihood of persisting to graduation. By providing financial assistance to low-income students, Kansas State University can work to close the achievement gap, prevent low-income students from stopping out of college, and boost retention and graduation rates.
More than forty years of research tells us that faculty-student relationships are essential to student success, but in the absence of intentional policies we cannot assume that every student will benefit.
As is this case for many institutions of higher education, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are values that we strive for as an institution, and to instill in our students. Institutions do a large amount of work in this area but have little data on the effectiveness of each intervention as we aspire to enact change.
These scorecards tend to provide to the public demographic data about the makeup of the student, faculty and staff populations as well as graduation and retention data that is disaggregated by demographic. These data provide a critical starting point for examining equity gaps at institutions of higher education. However, these data don’t measure the full experience of undergraduate students during their undergraduate careers.
