Further extending its community outreach, Wichita State partnered with Wichita Habitat for Humanity to build a house near campus for a Wichita family with three children.

The first step was a wall raising on Dec. 1 at Wichita Habitat's Rock the Block. WSU President Rick Muma and First Gentleman Rick Case were in attendance and helped with the wall raising.

“We saw this as a tangible example of WSU’s commitment to the neighborhood and as a way to demonstrate that it’s more than just words,” said Dr. Teri Hall, vice president for Wichita State’s Student Affairs.
