Three open seats on the Kansas Board of Regents have yet to be filled even though the board's next meeting is just days away.
The Kansas Board of Regents is reporting a system wide drop in fall enrollment.
The Board of Regents says preliminary fall enrollments are down overall from last year about 1.3 percent, which is about 2,504 students across the state’s 32 public universities, community colleges and technical colleges.
The regents say enrollment is up at the state’s technical colleges, where about 472 more students are enrolled this fall compared to the preliminary count in 2012. Enrollment was nearly flat at the seven public universities, and was down about 3,000 students in the state’s 19 community colleges.
The University of Kansas reports fall enrollment down about .55 percent, while fall enrollment is up about .83 percent at Kansas State. Emporia State reports a 2.83 percent enrollment increase.
