Whirlwind tour:

Whirlwind tour: In May, three dozen professors and administrators will board a motor coach at KU for a whirlwind tour of the state. The Wheat State Whirlwind Tour helps bring KU faculty closer with Kansans over the course of six days.
Participants engage in discussions with people across the state, learn what KU means to Kansans and develop ideas on how KU’s resources could be of further assistance to the Wheat State. The tour serves to better familiarize university representatives with Kansans’ needs, introduces new KU faculty to their new home state and allows the participants to interact with colleagues.
Stops on the tour have been selected largely because they otherwise are inaccessible to the general public. Several KU professors traditionally accompany the tour as on-board commentators, and participants receive a notebook containing maps, brochures and readings of interest. The tour provides a special means of outreach, as the participants meet the state’s citizens, discover the state’s beauty and learn from engaging guides about Kansas. The participants also meet people willing to share their great pride for their communities.
