Faculty, Staff, and Students:

I invite you follow the link below to view today's edition of the Provost eNews: http://www.provost.ku.edu/enews/20111024.shtml

In this issue of Provost eNews, the need for a new KU core curriculum is illustrated by sharing anecdotes from KU students. We are focusing on four key areas of Bold Aspirations during the first year of implementation, and key among those four is establishing a KU core curriculum.

I also again ask that you save the date for our Strategic Initiative Summits, which will engage the KU community on how we are putting our four strategic initiative themes into action. The first of our summits, on our theme Sustaining the Planet, Powering the World, will be held Friday, November 18, beginning at 8:30 am at The Commons. More detail on this summit will be in the next Provost eNews, and watch for information on the agenda and how to RSVP next week.

As a reminder, you can read more about our four areas of focus on the Bold Aspirations implementation web site.

Rock Chalk!
