The Kansas Board of Regents will be visiting Fort Hays State University on October 19th and will hold a meeting with the leaders from all state-run schools in Kansas. The nine-member board is the governing body of Kansas’ six universities and is also the coordinating board for the state’s 32 public higher education institutions.
The Kansas Board of Regents will be focusing on university issues that revolve around their 10-year strategic agenda for public higher education, called Foresight 2020. The goal of this agenda is to increase higher education attainment, improve economic alignment, and ensure state university excellence. The Board of Regents last met in Topeka from September 14th to the 15th and discussed the 2017 university budget priority as well as each of the colleges’ proposals and requests.
The Kansas Board of Regents will be meeting again on November 16th at Emporia State University, before returning to Topeka.
