Scholarship Hall Strategic Planning Committee July Updates

Scholarship Hall Alumni Council By Charge and Bylaws

Apply by April 3 deadline for Alumni Council

Please apply to be a part of the inaugural KU Scholarship Hall Alumni Council! During its work last year the KU Scholarship Hall Strategic Planning Committee identified engaged and energized alumni as a key strength of the scholarship halls and one of our best resources in ensuring their continued vitality. Recommendation #1 of the strategic plan the committee produced was the creation of a KU Scholarship Hall Alumni Council; bylaws governing the new KUSHAC were included in the plan. The success of this new Alumni Council depends on finding the people who will become its leaders for the next few years. The Strategic Planning Committee, in collaboration with the All Scholarship Hall Council and a KU Housing designee, will appoint the first year of the council, which will then become self-sustaining. The deadline for application is April 3.
