Kansas Agencies

Kansas Board of Regents Website

The nine-member Kansas Board of Regents is the governing board of the state’s six universities and the statewide coordinating board for the state’s 32 public higher education institutions (six state universities, one municipal university, nineteen community colleges, and six technical colleges). In addition, the Board administers the state’s student financial aid, adult education, high school equivalency, and career and technical education programs. Private proprietary schools and out-of-state institutions are authorized by the Kansas Board of Regents to operate in Kansas, and the Board continues to administer Kan-ed, a program for facilitating and promoting distance learning and telemedicine in schools, libraries and hospitals.

Kansas Legislative Research Department

The Legislative Research Department is one of four nonpartisan agencies that provide support services for the Kansas Legislature. The Department has provided nonpartisan, objective research and fiscal analysis for the Kansas Legislature since 1934. Recent Department publications and material of general interest are posted on this web site. Material prepared for individual legislators is confidential.

Kansas State legislators participated in a bus tour of Kansas public universities in an effort to learn more about higher education. The legislators visited KU Medical Center on Oct. 30, 2013 for a two-hour session with KU officials. In advance of this meeting, legislators asked KU to compile one-page profiles of KU and KU Medical Center, as well as answers to more than 80 specific questions about the university.
