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.
