Hi, I'm Jay Golden and I am honored to be the new President of Wichita State. I want to thank the Kansas Board of Regents for their confidence in me and our shared vision of graduating more students on time, reducing student debt, increasing our research and making an even greater impact for the economy of both our region and this wonderful state. My wife Dina and I are happy to be a part of this great community. GO SHOCKS!
