After more than 30 years in higher education, Bruce Shubert will retire from his position at Kansas State University in June 2013. Shubert has served as vice president for administration and finance at Kansas State since 2009, joining the university in 2003 as associate vice president for administration and finance.
“The K-State family deeply appreciates the service Bruce provided during a critical time at our university,” said President Kirk Schulz. “His deep institutional knowledge and high degree of integrity were key during a time of significant leadership transition.” Shultz continued his praise by saying Shubert helped significantly with the efforts with Shultz’s goal for making K-State one of the top 50 public research universities in the nation by 2025.
Shubert said he sees great potential for the role as the university moves forward.
“Given all the positives, this is a great time to attract a quality pool of applicants for this position,” Shubert said. “The university has an outstanding administrative team, positive enrollment trends and clear strategic direction. Kansas State will benefit from the fresh perspective and new approach my successor will bring to the team.”
Shubert came to Kansas State after 21 years at Fort Hays State University, where he held increasingly responsible positions, including vice president for administration and finance. He has served on Faculty Senate and numerous university committees and boards as well as representing the university to the Kansas Board of Regents and serving as the chair of the Regents Council of Business Officers for 2011-2012. During his tenure as vice president, he oversaw critical strategic facilities and infrastructure investments that will serve K-State for years to come.
