Olathe Kansas State plans to open its new campus in Olathe later this month.
The university announced in a news release Monday that a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house will be held Tuesday April 26.
The campus will offer master's and doctorate degrees in the biosciences and biotechnology, including animal health, food safety and related areas. It also offer professional development courses for employees of Olathe-area companies.
The campus' first building is the $28 million International Animal Health and Food Safety Institute. It was financed in part by a one-eighth cent sales tax approved by Johnson County voters in November 2008.
