LAWRENCE — University of Kansas Provost Jeff Vitter has announced the 2012-13 class of Staff Fellows. The program, now in its fifth year, is jointly coordinated by the Office of the Provost and Human Resources. Applications were accepted in August, and 13 new fellows have been named.
The purpose of the Staff Fellows Program is to make KU a stronger institution by providing opportunities to take part in a structured program of professional development that includes skill and leadership development as well as the opportunity to gain broader knowledge of KU. The program also provides opportunities to broaden the knowledge and experience of each Staff Fellow.
Staff Fellows work together during the academic year exploring various aspects of the larger administrative structure of KU.
