FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State University is planning to reorganize into four colleges by the beginning of the next school year.
KSU President Mary Sias told The State Journal that it's an effort to meet the needs of students and the community.
"We're in tough economic times, but we've made the decision that it's not just financial challenges we need to stop and deal with," she said. "It's how do we better serve our students, future students and the community."
There will be two new colleges: the College of Business and Computer Science and the College of Agriculture, Food Science and Sustainable Systems. Two others will be combined. The College of Arts, Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies will merge with the College of Math, Science, Technology and Health to form the College of Arts and Sciences.
In addition, nursing will be added to the existing College of Professional Studies.
