KU Lawrence Faculty and Staff

The first all-staff Town Hall meeting in the Changing for Excellence initiative is scheduled for today, noon to 2:00 p.m., in Budig Hall, Auditorium #110. This initiative will be an intensive self-assessment on how we do business at KU, with the goal of identifying ways we can more efficiently advance our teaching and research mission. I hope you’ll be able to attend, as we want your thoughts and ideas.

The Huron Consulting Group will lead the meeting, providing a background presentation followed by an open session for questions and discussion. Today’s forum will be videoconferenced to Edwards Campus in room RH 251. We will also be posting a videotaped version of the town hall meeting on the Changing for Excellence website; and we are requesting supervisors provide the time for all interested staff to attend.

A second all-staff Town Hall is scheduled for June 29, again from noon to 2:00 p.m., in the Apollo Auditorium of Nichols Hall.

Sincerely,

Jeffrey S. Vitter
Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor
