Losing AAU membership is a matter of time.

Future of Big 12 is major concern for KU alumni, friends

Too bad, we have the weakest chancellor and the weakest AD at the wrong time.

Big 12 creating anxiety

I agree. Big 12 is doomed, so KU should act now and talk to Pac-12.
Otherwise, KU will end up in the worst case scenario:

SEC:TAM, FSU
Pac-16:Texas, OU, OSU, TT
BigTen: Mizzou, Pitt
MWC:KU, KSU, ISU, Baylor

Heard on the Hill: Nebraska kicked out of prestigious Association of American Universities; specialty Texas license plates go beyond just Jayhawks; KU represented on state blue ribbon history panel

Maybe KU is next. I'm just worried. We need better chancellor who has strong leadership. Is Gray-Little sleeping?

KU increases federal research funding

"It shows we have a very good faculty who can compete in very difficult times," he said. "It's a very good sign in terms of quality of our scientists and their resilience."#84 isn't that good. Missouri is #77! Iowa State is much higher without medical school. Kentucky is among top 60.

Hemenway hopes for long tenure at KU

I think Hemenway is the best chancellor we've ever had!!! We are lucky to have him at KU.

Regents approve KU tuition increase

Tuition increase is necessary to push KU toward top 25 among public universities. But some departments have some lazy professors sitting on tenure and do no research. Squeezing money out of Kansas families and allocating portion of increased revenue for those idlers' pay raises are extremely unfair to all Kansas families, current students and hard-working professors.Maybe KU should revise the reward system or even eliminate tenure to re-emphasize teaching, not only maintain the pressure for publication but require faculty to subordinate their teaching to the quest for external funding.
