IGP Institute

The IGP Institute was established in 1978 as the international marketing arm of the
department of grain science and industry. For more than 35 years, the IGP Institute has
established a worldwide reputation as a center of excellence for international programs
related to flour milling and grain processing, feed manufacturing and grain quality
management, grain marketing and risk management focused on corn, grain sorghum,
soybeans and wheat.
The mission of the IGP Institute is to offer innovative technical programs to enhance the
market preference, consumption and utilization of U.S. cereal grains, oilseeds and their
value-added products for the global grain industry. To meet this mission, course offerings
are led by KSU faculty and industry professionals. Along with on-campus trainings, our
faculty lead customized on-location workshops as well as distance education courses.
Due to the support of faculty and staff, 2016 was an exceptional year for the IGP
Institute, serving 2,001 participants from 67 different countries in 80 courses. These
efforts would not be possible without the teamwork and dedication of everyone
involved in the IGP Institute.
