Morehead State University is doing more with less -- including space science curriculum

06/18/2014 07:52 AM

Morehead State University shares a similar story with the rest of Kentucky colleges and universities — budget cut backs have forced the school to trim the fat from their budgets, but university president Wayne Andrews says they’ve done it all while still offering cutting edge classes.

Andrews has been president of Morehead State University since January 1, 2005. His nine years as president places him third on the list of longest tenured univiersity presidents in the Commonwealth trailing only Gary Ransdell at Western Kentucky University and the University of Louisville’s James Ramsey.

Andrews has served at a time of transition for Morehead as he has seen an almost complete upgrade of the residence halls, the addition of new academic programs including one in space technology and new construction which allows the school to be a first class learning center for students of Eastern Kentucky as well as the rest of the commonwealth.

Senior Reporter Don Weber visited with Morehead’s 13th president to explore where the school has been, where it is now and where it needs to go in the future.
