Wichita State University has revealed more information about its expansion into Wichita’s Old Town neighborhood. The new venture will have an official title of “WSU Old Town” and will include the relocation of several different departments. School officials say the move will create a strong presence in the city’s most popular downtown destination.
The expansion is possible as Airbus Americas is relocating its Old Town offices to Wichita State's Innovation Campus. The company will move 400 employees and vacate thousands of square feet in Old Town.
Wichita State University joins KMUW in welcoming the station’s new General Manager/Director, Debra Fraser. Fraser comes to Wichita from Houston, where she worked in public radio for 25 years. Her most recent position was as Chief Operating Officer and Station Manager of Houston Public Media at University of Houston from 2007 – 2013.
