Statement of Support of and Solidarity with Minoritized KU Students
The University Honors Program stands in support of every student on KU’s campuses and their right to be safe from harassment and violence. We will defend any student—inclusive of all racial identities, gender expressions, sexual identities, disabilities, and more—looking for a safe and supportive home at KU. We will not tolerate discrimination and harassment, and we support the work of students, faculty, and staff who are working to better KU.
#BlackLivesMatter. #TransLivesMatter. We stand with you, and we will do our part to make KU better.
The goal of the University Honors Program is to challenge students to launch extraordinary lives. We do this by providing exceptional classes, advising, and enrichment opportunities to academically talented undergraduates at the University of Kansas. From convocation to commencement, we strive to foster a transformational community of critical thinkers, a community that is diverse, highly qualified, engaged, and motivated to lead.
