The KU Summit is held before classes begin each August. The Center for Teaching Excellence, Provost’s Office, and KU Medical Center co-sponsor the conference for faculty and instructional staff members from the Lawrence, Edwards, and medical center campuses. The Chancellor is the host of the event, and the Provost also participates in several roles. There is an opening plenary session including a thematic keynote speaker and recognition of the recipient of CTE’s Departmental Teaching Award. This is followed by three waves of conference style breakout sessions led by faculty members, and boxed lunch final discussions with academic leaders.
Programs from past conferences are available below.
