Could she be any more PC? I mean "associate provost for faculty advancement and diversity"? How many associate provosts and staff do you need to do that? She teaches "women's studies". Lists as one of her presentations one entitled, "Sitting pretty". Is this a sign of how far Kansas has fallen?

Is your post a sign of how far the human mind can go to be narrow minded?

Crass Kansans!! Could you be b more un-PC? Check out the KU HR diversity philosophy(Actions not words, though this staff hardly consists of clever rhetoricians) --and this closed circuit of power abuse is supposedly in charge of protecting equals rights for the Jayhawks community! Puke and double puke on such total lack of ethics. Susan Carlson may be exactly the charm.
