SALINA — Kansas State University's Polytechnic Campus is celebrating the grand opening of its Outreach Center with a purple ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 8, on the north corridor of campus on Scanlan Avenue. The public is welcome to attend.
The Outreach Center is home to Kansas State Polytechnic's professional education and outreach department, which serves both the Salina community and industry partners with a variety of training programs, professional development resources, K-12 collaborations and civic engagement opportunities. Formerly accommodating the campus's student activities center, the newly renovated space contains a training classroom with high-definition cameras and microphones to allow for hybrid class locations; a testing center, including serving as an official FAA testing center; and offices for professional education and outreach.
At the ceremony, attendees will hear from Danielle Brown, director of Kansas State Polytechnic's professional education and outreach, about the programs and services provided to Salina and surrounding communities, as well as future offerings. Joe Harrison, director of facilities at Kansas State Polytechnic, also will discuss the renovation process of the Outreach Center and the vision for developing the north corridor of the campus. Guests will then be able to tour the space and experience its contemporary design and technology.
