PSU’s Scott working to ensure smooth transition to universities next President

Gus The Gorilla sees President Scott off one final time

Later this week, Pittsburg State President Steve Scott will spend his final day as university president on campus.

Last July, he announced that the 2021-2022 academic year would be his final as head of the university, a role he’s held for 13-years.

On Monday, Scott spoke with KRPS’s Fred Fletcher-Fierro, saying that he’s been working to ensure a smooth transition between himself and PSU’s next President, Daniel Shipp.

“I’ve got stories that Dan Shipp won’t have. And what I’ve asked, what I’ve said to people, that’s okay. Help him build those stories. Help him build those relationships and those connections. And let’s embrace his leadership because we want him to be successful.”

Last month the Kansas Board of Regents hired Shipp as Pitt State’s next President. He’s currently the vice chancellor for strategic initiatives and associate to the chancellor at University of Nebraska Medical Center. He starts at PSU on June 6.
