Members of the Kansas Board of Regents are at their annual three-day retreat in southeast Kansas to discuss board priorities for the upcoming legislative session.
The regents are at Flint Oak, a hunting and fishing resort outside Fall River.
New Regents Chairman Tim Emert of Independence says given the tight budget constraints, he hopes higher education can get targeted funding that both Gov. Sam Brownback and lawmakers can approve.
The board on Thursday will hear from former University of Kansas Provost David Shulenburger, a senior fellow at the Association of Public Land-grant Universities, and discuss trends in higher education. Regents will also discuss distance learning.
On Friday, the board is scheduled to discuss its goals for the coming school year.
