Office of the Provost
Where all Jayhawks Rise Above

Message from the Vice Provost

Earlier this month, over a thousand students, faculty members, staff persons, and administrators toured the Tunnel of Oppression. Presented by the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Tunnel is an annual immersive experience of interactive exhibits. Participants engage with different forms of oppression associated with disabilities, economic class, body image, gender, gender expression, sexuality immigration, race and ethnicity. This year, it is believed to be the first time the Office of the Provost invited KU’s leadership team to participate in the tour as a group. We left the tour with decisions to make as individuals and as KU leaders – do we stand idle and tolerate people being treated in a discriminatory manner? Or do we assert our leadership and purposely act to create greater justice in our part of the world and beyond? We choose the latter and we need you to join us. Read More.



The Office of Diversity & Equity leads and facilitates the development of instititional policies and protocols intended to create a more representative, equitable, and inclusive KU; where greater fairness, care, and belonging are better integrated into our learning and workplace practices; and all have opportunities to meet their academic and professional goals.
