The Daily Brief

Holiday Boxes

THANK YOU to all the KU students, staff, and faculty who helped with the Community Outreach Center's (COC) drive for HOLIDAY BOXES for families in need. In the past two weeks, we collected 80 holiday boxes from around campus.  Last evening, volunteers from the COC helped to distribute the boxes, turkeys, and fruit to over 200 families who will have a better holiday because of you.   THANKS for your generosity and Happy Holidays from the COC and Friend Inc.



Jerry W. Schearer, associate dean, Inclusion and Outreach


Maintenance Alert: Traffic on South Campus Drive will be diverted to the East side of the Golden Bear Plaza from 8 a.m. to noon on Friday, Dec. 20 for maintenance in the steam manhole. Please contact me if there are concerns. Thank you.

Tom Green, director, Facilities Energy Management & Campus Utilities



For those faculty applying for tenure this semester please remember that it is essential that you submit your application letter for tenure to the President or Provost as his Designee by December 31st according to the CBA.  I suggest that you do so before these administrative offices close prior to the holiday break. 

Duane Crider, Chair: University Tenure Committee
