Mission Statement: Through the expansion of Fort Hays State University, we have found that there are many possibilities along with many road blocks in completing the expansion.

With this in mind, we plan to focus on the funding for the new building, bringing in more instructors and students, forming partnerships with other companies, and also forming partnerships with other schools.
