Kansas City, Mo. — Robert Hemenway, Kansas University's chancellor-elect, spent Friday at the KU Medical Center.
On Saturday, he went to a basketball game.
Hemenway, chancellor of the University of Kentucky's Lexington campus, visited the medical center to discuss plans for hiring a new executive vice chancellor. He met with administrators and search-committee members to determine goals for the upcoming year and for filling the position.
"We talked about our strategy for finding the best person," Hemenway said. "It was a good way for me to get oriented and for them to explain their goals."
Hemenway said the search committee was not far enough in the selection process to name finalists for the executive vice chancellor's position. He said they had made progress, though, by deciding what they were looking for in candidates. He said he didn't know when the finalists would be chosen or announced.
Hemenway took a break to attend the KU game against the University of Connecticut with Interim Chancellor Del Shankel.
Hemenway said he had a chance to meet with administrators from KU's Lawrence campus briefly Saturday morning and planned to return in late February to spend more time there.
