EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) Funding for three new programs at Emporia State University has made it into a Kansas Board of Regents budget proposal.
The school says the $31.7 million budget proposal approved last week would include $250,000 for each new program. Two of the programs are undergraduate degrees in eCommerce and sustainability. The third is a graduate degree in something called “nursing informatics,” which is the integration of information technology into nursing.
The combined $750,000 the university is seeking for the new programs would be used to pay staff salaries.
The Board of Regents will submit its budget proposal to Gov. Sam Brownback and the Legislature.
