Bold Aspirations Goal 2 | ELEVATING DOCTORAL EDUCATION
Prepare doctoral students as innovators and leaders who are ready to meet the demands of the academy and our global society
The University of Kansas is a comprehensive research university. Doctoral education is a distinguishing feature and a fundamental component of KU’s mission, and a defining factor in its international standing as a research institution. Graduate students make it possible for the University to conduct the research and scholarship of today while doctoral training at KU prepares the researchers, scholars, creators, educators, and innovators —whether humanists, scientists, or artists— of tomorrow. The stated intention of Bold Aspirations Goal 2 to elevate doctoral education at KU recognizes this central importance of graduate education.
Progress towards making KU’s Bold Aspirations a reality is being regularly reported by the Provost’s Office for the Strategic Plan. This site seeks to complement the information provided there by focusing on the work currently occurring in Graduate Studies.
