Provost eNews: Reviewing an Exciting Semester
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/20111206.shtml
This has been an exciting semester, and a great conclusion to a very active year at KU. We have successfully transitioned from crafting Bold Aspriations, our strategic plan, to moving forward with the hard work of implementation.
Please take a moment to read this week’s eNews and review the four areas of focus for this academic year:
- establishing a new KU core curriculum,
- strengthening the pipeline of students to and through KU,
- developing sustainable funding for doctoral education,
- boosting research through multidisciplinary strategic initiatives.
I’ve also included a preview looking ahead to 2012. We have made tremendous strides in our efforts to transform our great university, and I am grateful for your continued engagement and dedication to realizing our shared mission to elevate students and society by educating leaders, building health communities, and making discoveries that will change the world.
Remember, you can track our progress online on the implementation web site. You can also keep informed on Twitter by following @Bold_KU.
