Members of the Kansas Board of Regents visited Pittsburg State University on Friday, April 16, where they met with students, faculty and staff and got a first-hand look at some of the university's programs. The regents typically visit each of the six universities once every two years.
The regents began their day with breakfast at the Kansas Technology Center, where they heard from a team of construction management students about their successful competition at the International Builders Show in January and learned about other programs in the College of Technology.
The regents toured the campus and visited the new Bryant Student Health Center where they had presentations from the Office of Enrollment Management and Student Success and from Fort Scott Community College about its cooperative programs with PSU.
In the afternoon, the regents met with constituent groups, including classified staff, unclassified staff, students and faculty.
The Kansas Board of Regents is a nine-member board that governs the six universities and coordinates the state's 19 community colleges, five technical colleges, five technical schools and a municipal university.
