Reporting Concerns During Difficulty Times

The University of Kansas has taken unprecedented steps over the past two weeks to follow emerging health recommendations and mandates related to COVID-19, including limiting our on-campus presence to only essential employees who are needed to perform critical functions during the crisis.

As we navigate this experience of minimal on-campus presence with most of the KU community working, teaching and learning from home, inevitably there will be concerns that need to be voiced. Those concerns vary from personal safety, to equitable access to online classes, to data security, and more.

Human Resource Management encourages you to share your concerns or seek answers by contacting the relevant campus unit directly. Some key campus units include:
