KU Talking Points: November 2012
Sara Rosen, senior vice provost for academic affairs, will be the featured speaker at the next KU Communicators meeting on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 11:45 a.m. in the Big 12 Room of the Kansas Union.
Rosen will provide an update Bold Aspirations, specifically the accomplishments of the past year and what is planned for the second year of the plan’s implementation. Many of the changes being made as part of Bold Aspirations have direct relevance to our communications with current and prospective students and employees, as well as donors and alumni.
Also speaking will be Jeff Severin from the Center for Sustainability, who will talk about the Campus Sustainability Plan and how it fits in with the university’s mission.
We will be giving out meal cards for the restaurants in The Market on Level 3 of the Kansas Union. An RSVP message will be sent by Tommie Cassen closer to the event so we can make sure we have enough cards.
When you ask Kansans what first comes to mind when they think about the University of Kansas, they often mention basketball. So our 2012-13 institutional spot uses that as a hook to highlight all the other areas KU excels in.
Check out “We do this” and share it with your social media networks. It will run during football and men’s basketball games.
Starting next week we will highlight how KU’s discoveries change the world. This includes research, scholarship and creative works in all disciplines.
