University of KS Fundraising Effort Halfway to $1.2 Billion Goal


LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — University of Kansas officials say a campaign to raise $1.2 billion for the school is more than halfway toward its goal. The campaign, called "Far Above," has brought in $612 million from private donors in the last four years. It was publicly launched at an event Saturday in Lawrence. The effort is scheduled to end in June 2016. Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little says the university will look for ways to use the money beyond traditional efforts such as scholarships and renovating buildings. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that those efforts might include expanding study abroad and undergraduate research efforts. So far, donors have supported the creation of 246 new scholarships and 14 new professorships.
