UC Forum: The KU Core, a Renewed Beginning for all KU Undergraduates

Presented by Christopher Haufler, KU Professor of Systematic Botany
"The KU Core is the product of literally hundreds of dedicated individuals meeting for thousands of hours to consider the goals of a KU undergraduate education. After more than three years of work and much community involvement, the new curriculum will take effect with the entering class of fall 2013. Built on a set of six educational goals, the KU Core stretches across all schools and the College and is also being adopted by the KU Med School. The presentation will provide a brief history, current status, and anticipated next steps in developing the KU Core curriculum" University-Community Forum has been bringing together the KU and Lawrence communities since the 1940s. It is a series of presentations by faculty, students, and community members to educate and facilitate dialogue on ideas and events that shape our society. Optional lunch at 11:30am, lecture at 12pm.

Throwback Thursday at KU: Do you remember the Glass Onion? Fred Sadowski, a photograher for the Kansan, wrote on the back of this photo: "The Glass Onion, 624 W. 12th St., is a popular place for undergraduates to meet. The coffee shop offers a variety of drinks, food, and a good place to study." We can still taste the milkshakes. KU History
