Salina Campus

The Salina campus of the schools of Medicine and Nursing got a new home with the opening of the Salina Health Education Center in June. The new facility will help KU serve the state by providing underserved areas with more doctors and nurses.

The two schools are now housed in a downtown building purchased by the Salina Regional Health Foundation and renovated entirely with private contributions. The $9 million renovation provided the same kinds of cutting-edge technology found in the Health Education Building in Kansas City.


This new facility is one of the most tangible examples of outreach into the state of Kansas.

Hope for Addiction


The essence of treating addiction is about giving people hope. Part of what having a center like this does is give the opportunity to have hope that things can be different, and you don’t have to be stuck in that place.

Daniel Logan, 1975 KU alumnus

A gift from Logan and his wife, Gladys Cofrin, will create a Center for Addiction Research & Treatment. The center will serve as a hub for addictions research, training and outreach, bringing together practitioners and services from KU’s Lawrence campus and KU Medical Center, as well as community partners.
