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:

Responses to questions from legislators

 



"Even on an ordinary Saturday, when I am pressed for time to complete the (at times) overwhelming amount of schoolwork I have, there are moments so extraordinary — like looking up at the sun through the mosaic of colored leaves on campus — that remind me why I love what I do and why I love KU." - Sam Henkin, first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Geography, University of Kansas #exploreKU

The University of Kansas — Shaping those who shape the world Their feats are outstanding, extraordinary — even mythical. They are known as heroes. Discoverers. Innovators. Legends. But before they began shaping the world, they were each shaped themselves on a legendary Hill known as Mount Oread. And they all share one name that you should share too: Jayhawk.
