Don Beggs to Resign as WSU President

Don Beggs says he is ready to resign as president of Wichita State University, once the Kansas Board of Regents names a successor to be in place by the summer of next year. The 70-year-old Beggs has been president of WSU since 1999, and is only the 12th person to hold the job in school history. Beggs said he's been happy at Wichita State, but it's time for him to leave.

Wichita State will be suspending its search for a provost until the new president is in place. Keith Pickus is currently serving as interim provost.
