Education program receives grant
Murray State’s education program has been awarded a grant by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education to create the role of the new Regional College and Career Readiness Center, which will be working with several different grant groups with several different goals.

Grant partners include Henderson, Hopkinsville and Madisonville community colleges, the Kentucky Department of Education, Purchase Area Development District, Paducah Chamber Business and Education Partnership, West Kentucky Community Technical College and the West Kentucky Educational Cooperative.


Engineering program reaccredited
The University’s engineering and technology program received complete reaccreditations from the Technology Accreditation Commission, an international institute specializing in the review and awarding process of engineering programs of universities.

The program’s award signifies that the program has met all standards set by that specific profession.


In its Sept. 23 edition, The Murray State News incorrectly identified the University’s school of agriculture as the Horton School of Agriculture in its article titled “University plans arboretum expansion.” The proper name is the Hutson School of Agriculture.
