Three Kansas University alumnae have been named to Forbes magazine’s list of the 25 most powerful women in the world.

Cynthia Carroll, chief executive officer of the mining company Anglo American, ranked 14th; Sheila Bair, chairwoman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., ranked 15th; and Kathleen Sebelius, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services and former Kansas governor, ranked 23rd.

KU joined Princeton, Harvard and Yale as the only universities to each have three graduates among the top 25.

Carroll earned a master’s degree in geology at KU in 1982. Bair earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy in 1975 and a law degree in 1978 from KU, and Sebelius received a KU master’s degree in public administration in 1980.

Why is it that all of these well educated KU folks don't donate money to help academically.
Cait, how much have you kicked in since you been gone? Not a dime? Then shut up.

And Miss Sebilous did nothing to help KU while she was Gov. Just like she is doing nothing to help the country now.

I think it is time for Cait to keep her drivel in Canada. Pre Civil War Buildings? Okay, credibility gone. Time to move on.

Sebelius is only 23rd? Now that's shocking.

Just guessing Cynthia Carroll makes a hell of a lot more then the other two. You can make a lot with a government job, but you can't make millions.

Well represented in government jobs, as are most KU grads.

Back in my misspent youth KU was called variously "Harvard on the Kaw" and "Athens on the Plains". I think it's gone down hill since, due to multimillion dollar salaries to Bill Self and Turner Gill, but in the time period these women matriculated here KU had a huge reputation nationally academically. Too bad we traded it for bread and circuses.

"...Sebelius received a KU master’s degree in public administration in 1980."

And now oversees the entire US healthcare system. Wow!
