The Dodge City Community College Board of Trustees wants to be clear that it supports a proposed merger with Fort Hays State University.

The trustees on Tuesday unanimously approved a resolution declaring its support for the plan.

The trustees wanted to end any talk of the Dodge City school operating as a separate institution, with Fort Hays having a presence on campus.

The resolution also met a requirement from Dodge City officials that the college board affirm it would actively pursue the merger if it wanted access to $5.5 million in bonds needed for part of the project.

The merger still must be approved by Fort Hays State, the Kansas Board of Regents, the Legislature and Gov. Sam Brownback.
