KU chancellor sends condolences on death of student Courtney Newman

Fri, 03/01/2013

LAWRENCE – University of Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little and other officials offer the following statements regarding the death of student Courtney Newman:
 
Gray-Little: “The University of Kansas is mourning an enthusiastic student, kind friend and hard worker. Courtney Newman made a difference to so many people, and our thoughts are with each of them. On behalf of the entire KU community, I offer deep condolences to Courtney Newman’s family, friends and loved ones.”
 
Diana Robertson, director of student housing: "The KU Student Housing family lost a vibrant young woman who had an amazing future. Tragically, we will not see that future unfold. Our hearts go out to her family and friends, co-workers and the many lives she touched."
 
David Ekerdt, professor of sociology and director of the Gerontology Center: “Courtney was a very good student. She sat right in front and was quite engaged in the course, contributing insights and questions. I was looking forward to the rest of the semester with her.”
 
Newman was found dead in her room at Ellsworth Hall on Thursday, Feb. 28. She was in her second year as a resident assistant at the hall and a member of Zeta Phi Beta sorority. She was a Leavenworth senior, majoring in psychology and sociology, and was expected to graduate in May.
 
Cause of death is not yet known, pending a medical examiner’s report, but at this time police do not suspect foul play.

Boy with autism benefits from KU student’s undergraduate research Two-year-old Mark’s first haircut in a salon was pretty traumatic. He screamed. He cried. His dad had to restrain him – Mark has autism and a haircut wasn’t part of his routine. But there’s a happy ending. The experience led KU senior Kristin Miller to seek an Undergraduate Research Award (see http://bit.ly/1xod9VT) to develop ways for children with developmental disabilities like Mark to learn how to accept routine health care treatment, such as going to the dentist — or even getting a buzz cut. Watch the video to see why it has been especially rewarding for Miller to help children like Mark.
