KU faculty, staff push for improved tuition benefits for themselves and their families

Actually a fair number of KU faculty have children attending the University. Here is a KU press release about one: Rodolfo Matias Torres (http://www.chem.ku.edu/kyle-young-and...).

I happen to know that this KU undergraduate turned down Caltech.

Report shows college enrollments fell across country this fall

KU has to start somewhere if it is going to increase the perception of quality, and admission standards will help a great deal. Luckily the pricing policies of elite schools will also be a help with students from upper middle income households.

Regulations adopted to implement higher admission standards at KU in 2016

KU gets a wide range of undergraduate students. Some are truly excellent and have turned down elite universities to come to KU (usually because it is so much less expensive)

If you compare KU to the University of Wisconsin, as one example, KU would appear to be a bargain. For instate students, the cost of attending is about $2,000 cheaper at KU, for out of state students it is about $5,500 less at KU.

Actually that is sort of the way it works in higher education. If you have higher standards, the degree has higher value and more students are interested in obtaining it.

I did not know that KU had an online learning program. How many student credit hours did it create?

Much of what you are paying for in an institution of higher education is the educational environment. Fellow students are an important part of that. If you have a school of turkey chasers, it is not a good learning environment, and you would be wise not to send your student to the institution. KU only has some turkey chasers, but the fewer the better.
