KU to recognize graduating veterans with honor cords

Thu, 05/01/2014

LAWRENCE — Starting with its Spring 2014 Commencement, the University of Kansas will recognize graduating student-veterans by bestowing them with red, white and blue honor cords to wear during their graduation ceremony.

The initiative was developed by the KU Collegiate Veterans Association and the Alumni Association, and approved by the Traditions/Recognition Committee. The Military and Veterans Honor Cords confer special recognition for graduating students who have honorably served in the U.S. Armed Forces and demonstrated a commitment to academic excellence. To be eligible to receive the cords, students must have served, or are currently serving, in the military and have achieved a minimum 3.0 grade-point average at graduation.

“The veteran cord initiative was established to honor the sacrifice, service and commitment to excellence that student veterans all share,” said Liane Larson, a pharmacy major and president of the KU Collegiate Veterans who is graduating in May. “I can't wait to see hundreds of student veterans marching down the hill, with their red, white and blue cords waving, quietly reminding us of their service to this country—what a powerful sight!”

Cords will be provided at no cost to eligible students beginning Monday, May 5, in the Office of Graduate Military Programs in 222 Strong Hall. To receive their cords, students will need to stop by the GMP office and bring with them a copy of their student IDs. Students who have questions about cords or eligibility should contact Bill Steele at 785-864-7478 or by email.
