Fort Hays State University & City of Hays have a long relationship of collaboration on services, engaging global citizen-leaders, and creating opportunities for improved quality of life for Hays citizens. The Hayes Chief of Police contacted Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs about reaching out to our students about safety and being good neighbors. This meeting sparked an interest, and conversation about finding new avenues to partner with police, downtown Hays, the university and other city entities. ITGA is the perfect resource to get us started on this new partnership journey. We are excited to be part of a strong association that will help us build a future for town and gown in Hays, KS.
