KU Welcomes Leadership Team from Indian Institutions

Representatives from the Association of Catholic Christian Minority Institutions, based in India, travelled to the United States to visit State System universities and its leadership teams, including a visit to Kutztown University Tuesday, June 6. The visit, which included a campus tour from President Hawkinson, follows the signing of admission agreements in January, when President Hawkinson and other PASSHE presidents travelled to India to expand university partnerships.

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

Yesterday was a memorable day across the area with smoke like we haven’t seen in our atmosphere in awhile and dangerous air quality. That smoke looks to be a little less intense today, but not by as much as we would like. Vast improvement may not happen for a couple more days. In the meantime, expect another smoky sunny day with highs around 73. A purifying passing shower would be nice and there is a 20 percent chance of one. Fingers crossed.
