MAKE DISCOVERIES THAT CHANGE THE WORLD. HERE.
The University of Kansas is investing in 12 prestigious Foundation Distinguished Professorships to become a part of KU's history of research excellence and lay the foundations for tomorrow's most important discoveries.
KU's 12 Foundation Distinguished Professors will be supported by University Cluster Hires and further our mission of growth and innovation.

We are adding 22 net new faculty positions across the university, funded through the Changing for Excellence initiative. In addition, we are adding 30 net new engineering faculty members as part of the expansion of the School of Engineering, which is funded partly through the state of Kansas and by a 60% increase in engineering graduates. Altogether, counting the 12 Foundation Professors, we are adding 64 net new faculty on the Lawrence campus to support KU’s four strategic initiative themes.
We have a blueprint: our Bold Aspirations strategic plan. We have substantial new resources from the state as part of a unique partnership. We have a record of accomplishment and successful, supportive colleagues. We have vibrant start-ups, incubators, and partnerships with industry.
