Missouri Higher Education Board May Take Up SEMO-Three Rivers Dispute

APRIL 21, 2005 - Posted at 4:09 p.m. CDT

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A dispute between Southeast Missouri State and Three Rivers Community College over the operation of three Missouri Bootheel education centers could be decided by the state Coordinating Board for Higher Education.

Commissioner of higher education Gregory Fitch says the board may help try and resolve the dispute at its June 9 meeting if it remains unsettled by then.

Southeast owns the centers in Sikeston, Malden and Kennett, and the two schools have both offered classes there.  But Southeast says it was losing money and decided to teach all classes, effectively kicking out Three Rivers.

Southeast's regents have approved Fitch's plan to renew the partnership.  But Three Rivers officials say that proposal isn't fair.  Fitch is awaiting a counterproposal.
