According to data posted on the K-State website, enrollment has dropped by over 3,000 students since fall of 2014.
Despite this decrease in enrollment, K-State President Richard Myers says retention numbers in certain classes are looking positive.
Myers says graduation rates are good, but he thinks they can be better.
While there are some signs that efforts are paying off, Myers says real results likely won’t be seen for a couple years.
One step K-State has recently taken to improve enrollment is the hiring of Dr. Karen Goos as its first chief enrollment officer to lead the multi-year effort.
She previously served as the vice provost for enrollment management at the University of Central Missouri.
