LAWRENCE | The University of Kansas is not welcoming Emporia State into its neighborhood.
A proposal by Emporia State to begin offering its teachers program at Johnson County Community College was tabled Tuesday after Kansas officials raised concerns at a Kansas Board of Regents committee meeting.
Barbara Romzek, Kansas' interim vice provost of academic affairs, says Johnson County is in the Lawrence-based university's geographic service area.
Emporia State officials said they have been in talks with the community college for more than a year about offering a bachelor of science in education with an elementary education major.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the committee kept the issue off the agenda for at least a month to allow further discussion.
