BRUCE SHUBERT TO REMAIN AS K-STATE'S VICE PRESIDENT FOR ADMINISTRATION AND FINANCE
MANHATTAN -- Bruce Shubert, Kansas State University's vice president for administration and finance, will remain in the post.
Shubert had originally requested to return to his prior post of associate vice president, which he held from 2003-2008. He became vice president for administration and finance Jan. 1, 2009, when he succeeded Tom Rawson.
"After a national search to find a new vice president, it was clear that Bruce was and is the best person for the job. The search process helped us better understand the many qualities and capabilities Bruce has brought to the position," said Tim de Noble, head of the search committee and dean of K-State's College of Architecture, Planning and Design.
"Bruce has been doing outstanding work as vice president for administration and finance," said K-State President Kirk Schulz. "His knowledge, experience and leadership in helping guide the university through this difficult economic period have been invaluable. I'm thrilled he has decided to remain in his current position."
Shubert came to K-State after 21 years at Fort Hays State University, where he held increasingly responsible positions, including vice president for administration and finance. He earned both his bachelor's and his MBA from Fort Hays State University, where he was a member of Phi Kappa Phi honor society. He is a Certified Public Accountant and also has experience in systems analysis, programming and other information technology functions.
"I simply want to help K-State move forward during dynamic times," Shubert said of his decision to remain as vice president. "I believe my knowledge of the university and Kansas budget systems will be important as we continue to face challenges and plan for the future."
