Kansas college gets letter from WSU over culinary program

From Associated Press -

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas college has pulled its culinary program out of a plan to take over an old fire station after receiving a cease-and-desist letter from Wichita State University and WSU Tech.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Butler Community College's Hospitality and Culinary Arts program was one of two contenders to take over the fire station in Wichita.

But the college withdrew its name last week after receiving a letter signed by WSU General Counsel David Moses. The letter says state law and Kansas Board of Regents policy require approval by WSU and the Board of Regents for Butler to offer courses outside its service area.

Butler spokeswoman Kelley Snedden says the school withdrew from the fire station plan because it needs more time to work on collaboration with the institutions.
