The mission of the University of Kansas is to lift students and society by educating leaders, building healthy communities, and making discoveries that change the world.
We will do that by raising the expectations we have for ourselves, the aspirations we have for our state, and the hopes we have for our world.
In November 2015, Chancellor Gray-Little established the search committee that is leading our efforts to identify the next provost of the University of Kansas. Chaired by Steve Warren, professor and investigator in the Life Span Institute, the search committee has been working with potential candidates all winter and spring. Finalists made campus visits in April 2016.
