Wichita State Stresses Applied Learning, Research

KSAL StaffApril 26, 2013

Wichita State University’s new strategic plan focuses on making the school an international leader in applied learning and research.

The university unveiled the plan Thursday. It includes goals to strengthen Wichita State’s reputation as a research university by increasing projects and efforts to keep students on campus longer.

The plan also seeks to make applied learning or research experience a part of every student’s academic career. That would allow students to apply the education they are receiving while they are in school.

Most applied learning currently occurs through internships or the university’s cooperative education program. But only a small fraction of the university’s 15,000 students enroll in those programs.

A 30-member committee devised the plan after receiving thousands of suggestions from the public.
