LAWRENCE — Four candidates will make public presentations in the coming weeks as the University of Kansas launches a search for a director of its new Student Veteran Center, set to open in January 2017.
The search committee, led by Greg Freix of the School of Business, invites students, faculty and staff to attend all candidate presentations and provide feedback. Each candidate will share ideas on the topic of “Transition challenges to student veterans and how the KU Student Veteran Center will address them in a resource-constrained environment.” The schedules for the presentations:

The KU Student Veteran Center will be the focal point for KU's vision to serve as a leading university in the nation for comprehensive student veteran programming. The center and its staff will develop and sustain programming for the four phases of the student veteran: recruitment, admissions and first-year experience, persistence to degree, and career services.
