Kihl to head Collin’s new Higher Education Center

Brenda Kihl, Associate Vice President for Strategic Initiative for Collin College, has been chosen to head up the Higher Education Center scheduled for completion in 2010 in McKinney.

Kihl will be organizing and working with the various institutions to establish the degree programs for the Higher Education Center. Present partners include the University of Texas at Dallas, Texas A&M University-Commerce, Southern Methodist University, Texas A&M University-College Station, Texas Woman’s University, Texas Tech University, Baylor University and the University of North Texas. It’s possible these schools will take part in the Higher Education Center.

A law school will also be a large part of the Higher Education Center along with a relationship with the medical center adjacent to the site.
