Strategy 1-C

Invest in first-year intellectual experiences

Preparing KU graduates for success in the 21st century requires a transformation of the undergraduate experience for students and faculty. An essential part of this transformation is the development of high-quality first-year experiences that promote early and frequent student engagement in the intellectual life of the university and lead students to opportunities for experiential learning in the second year and beyond.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Several initiatives are furthering efforts to ensure KU offers a welcoming and supportive environment for all to learn, live, work, and discover.
