The Kansas City Star February 21, 2011
 
Kansas City Kansas Community College President Thomas Burke announced Tuesday at a college trustee meeting that he will retire this summer.

Burke, who has led the college since 1992, is the longest-serving president of the community college. Before that Burke, 66, served as the college’s vice president.

On Tuesday Burke said the timing was right to retire.

“It’s just time for me to step aside,” he said.

Under his guidance, Kansas City Kansas Community College has grown tremendously, trustees said. When he first arrived, college enrollment was about 4,500 students. It has since grown to about 7,600. Burke said he was also proud of the gains in student achievement and several agreements that have meant more community colleges students have transitioned to universities to further their education.

The school is on verge of another major transition. It merged with the Area Technical School in Kansas City, Kan., and is developing a state-of-the-art facility to house the school.

The college is also experiencing unprecedented tuition spikes, including a 20 percent increase in full-time equivalent students during the fall semester.
