KU unveils Spanish-language version of Web site

KU's new Spanish-language Web site is intended to cater to a diverse group of prospective students.

January 22, 2010


Kansas University has announced it is reaching out to Kansas’ Latino and Hispanic population with a new Spanish-language version of its Web site.

The site,ñol, offers information about KU’s academic and student services, a Spanish-language promotional video and a welcome message from KU’s interim Provost Danny Anderson, whose academic field is Spanish.

Other information is available, too, including information about admissions, housing and other answers to frequently asked questions.

The site was suggested by KU’s Latino Vision Council, a group formed to better connect with and serve KU’s growing Latino population.

So is KU going to start offering complete degrees taught in Spanish "to serve KU's growing Latino population"? I assumed that if the person is unable to speak English or read an English web site, that person would have no interest, no chance at a KU education.

Don't forget to build one for the local reactionaries, you know, with words of 2 syllables or less.
