Oklahoma Supreme Court Justice Thomas Colbert was the first presidential candidate to visit campus during the search for Kentucky State University’s next president.

Colbert participated in open forums all day and fielded questions from students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members. At the conclusion of the last forum, Colbert met with the KSU Board of Regents in a special-called meeting for an interview.

All presidential search finalists will visit campus this week and participate in the same forums and special-called meetings.
