Wichita State University will be closed Wednesday on the National Day of Mourning for former President George H.W. Bush.

The former President died Friday at age 94.

Wichita State officials said all classes will be canceled on Wednesday, and Kansas governor Jeff Colyer has declared Wednesday as a legal holiday for state employees.

This is the final week of the fall semester at WSU, so Wednesday would be a day where some students turn in final projects or take exams.  Faculty members with classes scheduled on Wednesday should contact students to inform them what needs to be done to complete their work.   The university will resume normal operations on Wednesday.

WSU Tech will also be closed on Wednesday and classes will be canceled.

WSU previously observed legal holidays for deceased Presidents Reagan in 2004 and Gerald Ford in 2007.
