All our endeavors should be consistent with the total mission of Kansas State University. The KSU athletics program should be conducted in a manner that excercises fair and equitable treatment of student-athletes and institutional personnel regardless of gender or race. All Department activities should be conducted within the rules, regulations, and policies as established by the University, Big XII Conference and the NCAA. The Department's decision making process should consider first the welfare of current and future student-athletes.

The KSU Athletic Department should consider the commitment to academics to be the number one priority. The Department will provide a learning experience that should include attention to social, moral, emotional, cultural and vocational growth, and development. The Department will strive to emphasize the values of sportsmanship, loyalty, teamwork, and individual accountability. The emotional and physical welfare of every student-athlete will be an unchallenged consideration by Department staff and coaches.

The KSU Athletics Department will provide an environment that allows individuals to express themselves at their maximum potential.
