— Kansas University, where Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos earned his economics and business degrees, is inviting him to attend events marking the 50th anniversary of its Center for Latin American Studies.

Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little extended the invitation Thursday during a meeting in Bogota with Santos. Santos graduated from the university in 1973.

Gray-Little says Santos has not given an answer yet, but she is optimistic he will visit the Lawrence campus.

In her words, "I think he wants to come."
