The Kansas State Alumni Association is committed to legislative advocacy on behalf of Kansas State University and Higher Education. The mission of Wildcats for Higher Education is to provide opportunities for our constituents to stay informed and be involved as advocates in keeping legislators abreast of issues impacting the university and higher education.
The Association asks supporters of Kansas State University to voluntarily contact legislators and encourage them to show their support of the Regents Institutions budget needs on specific topics.
