Proposed Tuition Program for Dependents/Spouse


May 7, 2018


Currently, the Staff Senate President, President Elect, and Legislative Affairs Committee chair are conducting meetings with Enrollment Management, Registar’s office, and Human Resources to discuss the mechanics of how the Tuition Assistance Program (with the inclusion of dependents and spouses) would operate.  Additionally, a survey will be developed to help determine those eligible staff/faculty who would utilize the program along with a spouse and/or dependents in creating a fiscal note in preparation for a presentation to the KU administration.

University Senate Open Forum

To: Faculty, Staff and Students

Re: Open Forum, 6 December 2018       

The University Senate will hold an Open Forum next Thursday, 6 December 2018, 3-5 pm, in Room 1154 of the Integrated Science Building to discuss the university budget cuts and any related concerns affecting faculty, staff, and students. The general intent is to hear from university constituents who have not had the opportunity to share their questions and concerns. Senate officers and representatives will be in attendance, but the forum will maximize commentary from the floor as we seek additional input from the university community.  Questions may also be sent to: Questions/Comments.  

When: December 6, 2018, 3:00pm – 5:00 pm
Where: Integrated Science Building, Room 1154 (map)

The forum will be livestreamed via ZOOM technology https://governance.ku.edu/zoom20181206 and ASL interpretation will be provided on-site.  A recap of the meeting, questions asked, and answers given will be subsequently posted on the Governance website.
