By Dr. Ralph Richardson, dean and CEO, Kansas State University’s Olathe campus

As many of you know, it was with mixed emotions when I announced earlier this year that I would retire as dean and CEO of Kansas State University's Olathe campus. My 49-year career has revolved around veterinary medicine and the life sciences. In that time, I've seen the fields blossom and become pillars of strength for Greater Kansas City. 

Spring 2016 was one to remember for Andrew Walter, a recent graduate of the master’s in applied statistics and analytics program at the KU Edwards Campus (KUEC). In January, he began his graduate school journey and come spring break, he and his wife found out they were expecting a new addition to the family.

Rising enrollment in JCERT-funded programs helped power significant growth in spring 2018 enrollment at the KU Edwards Campus (KUEC).

KUEC’s dozen JCERT degree and certificate programs accounted for nearly 28 percent of the student credit hours generated on campus for the new semester. The 3,322 JCERT credit hours mark a 26 percent jump from a year earlier – and represent 61 percent of the overall enrollment growth at KUEC.
