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:

Questions?
April showers bring…snow? Chris Bernosky, freshman in the University of Kansas School of Engineering, was studying in the sixth floor lobby of Oliver when he saw this storm coming in over campus. “I thought it was cool how the sun is still visible even though the dark clouds are rolling in.” Rain or shine, how will you #exploreKU this spring?

The Big Event at KU 2014 The 2014 Big Event connected the KU campus with the Lawrence community by recruiting 3,000 student, faculty, and staff volunteers to work at 300 local job sites during one day of service.  Registration for volunteers and job requests for residents will be available in fall 2014 for the 2015 Big Event.
