Changing for Excellence
Being good stewards of scarce resources
We have a responsibility to our students, faculty, and staff, as well as to the taxpayers of Kansas and our donors, to ensure that we devote every dollar possible to teaching, discovery and public service. Additionally, if we hope to take advantage of the opportunities in front of us and raise KU’s stature as a world-class university, we must transform the way we operate.
To do that, we have undertaken an intensive review of how we do business at KU and identified ways we can be more effective. This site documents the process by which we arrived at a range of recommended efficiencies, which are outlined in the Phase I Report.
Thanks to input from across the university community, we are now in the process of implementing many of those recommendations. Two sites provide more information about the ongoing implementation process: one for the Lawrence Campus and one for the KU Medical Center.
Together, we can transform KU so that we are better able to achieve our shared mission of lifting students and society by educating leaders, building healthy communities, and making discoveries that change the world.
