University Senate Calls for Transparent Chancellor Selection

The KU University Senate released a statement Thursday calling for a more transparent selection process for the new chancellor.

The statement advocated for the inclusion of representatives from faculty, staff and student senates on the selection committee as well as an opportunity for the community to become familiar with the finalists prior to the final selection.

It is crucial that the students, faculty and staff, as well as community leaders, play a vital role in selecting the next Chancellor — especially in light of the challenges of weapons on campus, and achieving greater diversity, equity and inclusion,” the statement said.

The Kansas Board of Regents currently plans to use a closed selection process and will not release details about the new chancellor until after they have already been selected.
