K-STATE PRESIDENT KIRK SCHULZ WELCOMES OPPORTUNITY TO MEET GOVERNOR'S CHALLENGE
MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University stands ready to respond to Gov. Mark Parkinson's challenges. That's the word from K-State's new president, Kirk Schulz.
"Since I came to K-State to move an already excellent university aggressively forward, we have been working with K-State students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends as the first step in setting a new strategic direction," Schulz said. "We are confident that our new 10-year plan will allow K-State to meet and exceed Gov. Parkinson's challenges by building on a number of highly ranked programs and a legacy of student successes. We will become more nationally prominent. We will maximize retention and graduation rates, while ensuring a diverse and accessible education. Our graduates will continue to be successful in all economic climates. As the state's student-centered, land-grant university, our mission is playing out during these tough economic times and will continue well into the future."
