SeMo Schools Touting Advantages of Going Their Own Way

OCTOBER 17, 2005 - Posted at 3:58 p.m. CDT

 

SIKESTON, MO - Missouri's higher education commissioner says today that he would like a dispute between two southeast Missouri schools to be resolved before the next legislative session.

Southeast Missouri State University and Three Rivers Community College used to run three regional education centers together.  When rent and other issues couldn't be resolved, Southeast Missouri evicted Three Rivers from the centers in Sikeston, Malden, and Kennett in February.

Now both schools operate separate centers in those communities and Three Rivers has three others in the region.

Higher education commissioner Gregory Fitch said he is talking to both schools.  He said the Coordinating Board for Higher Education will look to make a recommendation at its December board meeting.  He said it's too soon to know what form it may take.
