Yesterday, Governor Sam Brownback was on the PSU campus as part of his statewide tour in support of level and stable funding to higher education. The Governor first met with campus leadership to discuss his commitment to higher education, its essential role in growing the Kansas economy, as well as the concerns of the campus community. He was then given the opportunity to tour our nursing simulation lab where PSU is training the next generation of healthcare professionals.
The Governor ended his visit to PSU with a press conference alongside Pres. Steve Scott, PSU student body president Taylor Gravett, and Regent Ed McKechnie, reiterating his support for the vital role of PSU and higher education. You can watch the full press conference here.

As the Governor reiterated yesterday, higher education is essential to the growth of the Kansas economy and our momentum is too great to be set back by cuts. Please help us support higher education and oppose the destructive cuts proposed by the Kansas House.
