Kansas State University has begun the formal process to change the name of the Salina campus to Kansas State University Polytechnic Campus. The proposed name change reflect its 50-year mission as a polytechnic campus. A name change requires approval by the Kansas Board of Regents and possibly legislative action.
“We are positioning our campus for national growth,” said Verna Fitzsimmons, CEO and dean of Kansas State University Salina. “Our campus will continue to focus on career-based programs and experiential learning. We are taking a look at expanding what we offer to meet the needs of tomorrow’s careers.”
