On Campus

Carillon bells ring in every Jayhawk’s heart

In the center of a tiny gray office, 70 steps up a tiny, barely lit spiral staircase, sits the nucleus of the Kansas University carillon.

KU’s signature sound

Elizabeth Egbert Berghout, is the Kansas University carrilloneur. She plays weekly recitals on the carillon as well as performing for special events like commencement.

KU, military connections prove mutually beneficial

When Kansas University Army ROTC cadets do most of their internal battalion training, they don’t have to go far to experience a major military base.

Military veterans seeking bill that would provide in-state tuition

Military veterans say they will try again next year to get legislative approval of a bill that would allow all veterans to pay the lower in-state tuition rate to attend a Kansas Board of Regents university.

The KU People section claims to be "Putting KU on Display" and does a nice job of showcasing 8 male faculty members. My wife commented to me: "can't they find any women to put on the face of KU?"

After all, 45% of faculty are female according to the open-site.org website, and 49-52% of students, depending on which website you go to, are women. I know of plenty of top notch female faculty--why not show more than half a face? Considering the prominent role women have played in the history of our state in general and KU in particular, perhaps it's not too late to correct this most likely unintentional oversight?
