DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Dodge City Community College could become part of Fort Hays State University under a proposal that would create the first public four-year degree-granting college in southwest Kansas.

The community college's Board of Trustees has been discussing the proposal, which would include developing an Institute of Applied Technology at what could be known as Fort Hays State University at Dodge City.

The institute would include a cooperative curriculum program, as well as having Fort Hays teach other four-year programs in Dodge City based on demand.

The Dodge City Globe reports the board of trustees was expected to vote Tuesday to pursue the proposal, which would be only a preliminary step. The plan would have to be approved by the Board of Regents, Legislature and governor.
