The University Press of Kansas is a publisher in Lawrence, KS that represents the six state universities in the US state of Kansas: Emporia State University, Fort Hays State University, Kansas State University (K-State), Pittsburg State University, the University of Kansas (KU), and Wichita State University.[a]

History

The press was created in 1946. There were big changes in 1967 and 1976. Today, it operates as a consortium with representation from each of the participating universities. The press is on the west part of the KU campus.[3]

The press mostly publishes books about American politics and military history. They also publish books about the region around it.[4]

Notes

  1. Washburn University, a public university in Topeka, is funded by county sales tax, and it has its own board of regents.[2] It is thus not counted as a state universities.
