WSU and KU propose health sciences education center in Wichita
As community leaders plan for the growth and economic prosperity of our state, Wichita
State University and the University of Kansas are bolstering those efforts through
an initiative to build a joint health sciences education center in Wichita.
The Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul program at WSU is currently converting a Boeing
777 from a passenger aircraft to a freighter and conducting special-missions modifications
for the Boeing 737. WSU's MRO is one of only three in the world and two in the nation.
Everything WSU does is driven by the desire to help grow the communities we serve.
One of those communities is our Kansas business community, the people who hire our
graduates; and we’ve made it a priority to build our partnerships with them across
the state to help them prosper.
Need-based aid is vital to ensuring higher education is affordable and accessible
to Kansas families. WSU is bringing in new populations to college, and we’re helping
to ease the financial burden of higher education for families in our state.
