Information for legislative bus tour visit on Oct. 30

Thursday, October 17, 2013

The state’s upcoming legislative session doesn’t start until January. But legislators are already working hard, with members of the budget-writing committees set to launch an October bus tour of Kansas public universities in an effort to learn more about higher education. The legislators will visit KU Medical Center on Oct. 30 for a two-hour session with KU officials.

In advance of this meeting, legislators asked KU to compile one-page profiles of KU and KU Medical Center, as well as answers to more than 80 specific questions about the university. Those items are below:
