Bardo didn’t wait for inauguration to get busy

Though he officially started on the job on July 1, and unofficially began before then, congratulations to John Bardo on being inaugurated Friday as president of Wichita State University. Bardo has been a whirlwind of activity since returning to Wichita (he taught at WSU from 1976 to 1983). His goals for the university include increasing student enrollment, building a new residence hall in the center of campus, expanding research, turning more research into products in the marketplace, and improving the quality of student experience.
