WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Students at Wichita State University narrowly rejected a proposal to raise their own fees to fund improvements for academic facilities.
The university announced Wednesday that the $38.5 million referendum failed by 107 votes. The referendum drew the highest turnout ever for a Wichita State student vote or survey.
If approved, the revenue was expected to raise $20 million for a new W. Frank Barton School of Business.
