acres near Kenoza Lake and features the David Hartleb Technology

Our urban Lawrence campus is centered around the new, stateof-

the-art $27 million El Hefni Health and Technology Center, as

as a leader college with Achieving the Dream; in our work using

Appreciative Inquiry for planning; and in the recent successful
