The University of Kansas will not use the controversial Kansas Board of Regents policy that would allow for tenured faculty to be terminated in order to relieve financial pressures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Chancellor Douglas Girod told the Board of Regents Thursday.

All of the recommendations made by the Task Force of Community-Responsive Public Safety will be implemented by the University of Kansas, Chancellor Girod announced Monday.

Due to weather concerns, the 2:30 p.m. commencement ceremony for the class of 2021 has been canceled. The university will provide updates throughout the day about the 6:30 p.m. ceremony. 

The University of Kansas canceled the first commencement ceremony, scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m, due to severe weather, according to an alert sent out through KU’s emergency notification system.
