University Of Kansas Chancellor Visits Broadcast Square
09/16/2009

Dr. Bernadette Gray-Little paid a visit to Broadcast Square Tuesday evening to discuss her thoughts on the University of Kansas and first impressions of the state. Dr. Gray-Little arrived at KU a little over a month ago and has hit the ground running. She is currently making her way around the state talking to communities, school officials and students, and getting their feel for the University, and feedback on how KU can better serve and meet the needs of all students. Coming from the University of North Carolina, where she most recently served as Executive Vice Chancellor, Gray-Little sees many similariteis between the two universities, especially in their dedication to students, strong medical programs, and athletics. One of the accomplishments the Chancellor Gray-Little is proud of is KU's striving to be designated a comprehensive cancer center by the National Cancer Institute, and what this would mean to Kansans. She also stated the she will be asking the Kansas Board of Regents for permission to expand KU's stadium, and the revenue from the sale of the additional seats would provide $40 million to the university to enhance academic programs. Dr. Gray-Little has already made an appearance at the Kansas State Fair and has travelled from the eastern side of the state to the west. One of the unique things about Kansas that she enjoys is the diversity of the landscape of Kansas, and the friendly people throughout the entire state. She stated when she accepted the position as chancellor, one of the first phone calls she received was from former KU coach Roy Williams, who is now at UNC. When asked if KU were to play UNC this year in basketball, who would she be rooting for, without hestiation she said"KU, definitely".
