Discussion Boards

Here you will find discussions on various topics that have emerged through the strategic planning process. As important goals surface, we ask the KU community to weigh in on the issues, offer suggestions or ideas, and build a broad virtual conversation among the KU community.

Discussion threads placed here are for the KU community to join the conversation. Your ideas and suggestions will be considered by the work groups and strategic planning steering committee and collected for further exploration. For example, the ideas on the work group reports and enabler goals will directly contribute to the actions ultimately incorporated for the strategic action plan.

NOTE: You can leave anonymous feedback even though you are required to login to reach the discussion boards.

Please enter any of the discussion topics through this portal.

Jaclyn Carpenter, a junior studying American Studies, took a moment after finishing her finals to wander around Marvin Grove — know the feeling? But Jaclyn told us her semester was a good one. Her favorite class this year? Jewish American Literature, "because professor Cheryl Lester really knows how to engage with her classes." This made us want to know: What was your favorite class and why? Jaclyn added some advice: “You're only on this campus for four years, so take any free time you have to explore all the unique wonders it has." We love that idea, Jaclyn. #exploreKU

Curiosity sparks KU paleontologist Chris Beard’s quest for man’s ancient cousins When he’s not scrutinizing ancient primate fossils in his KU lab, world-renowned paleontologist Chris Beard (http://bit.ly/1w3TQSj) is out stalking human evolutionary ancestors in remote corners of Libya, Turkey, China, Myanmar, Kazakhstan, Cambodia, Egypt, Tunisia, or Kenya. Beard, who came to KU as a Foundation Distinguished Professor, has a passion for being out in the middle of nowhere and making a discovery — “There’s nothing better than that. It’s fabulous.”
