Changing for Excellence Meeting, November 7: Save the Date
Dear Faculty and Staff,
The university is nearing the end of Phase II of Changing for Excellence, the development of business cases for the 12 identified opportunities. Following the success of our last meeting at The Commons, a decision has been made to use a similar format to discuss the business cases we will be moving forward with.
Please “save the date” of Monday, November 7, for our final Changing for Excellence public meeting. The meeting will be from 9:00 am – 11:00 am at the Kansas Union. Multiple rooms will be reserved for three 30-minute break-out sessions dedicated to each business case that will be pursued.
Changing for Excellence is an intensive self-assessment on how we do business at KU. The goal is to identify ways we can more efficiently and effectively advance our teaching and research mission, with Huron Consulting Group commissioned to guide KU through its self-assessment process. Cost savings identified from the assessment will be carefully re-invested in the university priorities identified during the extensive strategic planning process.
The date of this meeting has been rescheduled to allow maximum participation, so please update your calendar for Monday, November 7 from 9:00 am – 11:00 am at the Kansas Union. Thanks to all of you for your engagement in this important process.
