Regents officials coming to Emporia

Kansas Board of Regents chair Fred Logan is making stops in Emporia on Tuesday.

Logan will be the host for an open campus forum taking place at the Memorial Union Preston Family Room from 11 am to noon. That forum will concentrate on the state of higher education across Kansas. 

Logan and Regents President Andy Tompkins will follow that with a stop at KVOE early Tuesday afternoon.

Two months ago, the Board of Regents said they want to increase the number of Kansas residents obtaining a certificate, associates degree or bachelors degree to 60 percent as part of the Regents' Foresight 2020 vision. Deeply troubled by budget cuts from lawmakers earlier this year, the Regents have also requested a restoration of the 1.5-percent budget cut in question as well as funding for imposed salary and wage cuts.
