V. Kaye Monk-Morgan
Assistant Vice President, Academic Affairs
Wichita State University
Kaye Monk-Morgan, a twenty-five year veteran of student affairs with 20+ years of experience in the field of college access and success, offers a unique blend of executive vision, leadership acumen and desire to help children with the greatest needs gain access to and successfully complete college. For 20 years, Morgan was charged with advancing the interest of disadvantaged high school students in science, technology, engineering, math and health-related fields. It is a charge that would frame the rest of her career.
A first-generation college student herself, Monk-Morgan understands the benefit of having a college education, especially one in a STEM field. Holding a bachelor’s degree in chemistry/business, a master’s degree in public administration with emphasis in higher education studies, and a certificate in higher education, equipped this educator for her long-held role as the director of the TRIO upward bound math science center at Wichita State University and her new role as assistant vice president, academic affairs.
