There’s something special about Pittsburg State! This is the response you’re likely to hear when you ask any of our 65,000 alumni and friends about their time at this university.
It’s a testament to the student-centered focus Pittsburg State has held for more than 110 years, and to the incredible connection we continue to share with our graduates.
Although our campus has grown, our core mission remains just as it did in 1903; to provide transformational experiences for our students and our community.
Our faculty, administrators and staff are committed to strengthening the qualities that have made Pittsburg State an educational destination for generations of Gorillas:
- Providing financial support so that all qualified students may attend
- Delivering excellence in teaching and learning, both inside and outside of the classroom
- Creating innovative academic programming to meet the demands of an ever-changing global community
- Providing a learning environment that actively combines advanced theory with practical knowledge
