Jayhawks for Higher Education: Nov. 7, 2016

General election is Nov. 8

Dear Jayhawk,

Thanks for your loyalty as a KU Alumni Association member. One of the most important ways you can advocate for KU is to vote tomorrow, Nov. 8, in the general election for legislative candidates who support higher education.

This election year is critical to the future of Kansas colleges and universities. In recent years, state financial support for KU has fallen dramatically:

Please make higher education a key consideration as you cast your vote tomorrow—and encourage your fellow citizens to do the same. To find your polling location, visit voteks.org.

If you would like to become more involved in legislative advocacy for KU, the Alumni Association also coordinates a statewide network, Jayhawks for Higher Education. More than 1,700 alumni and friends are JHE members. They receive emails highlighting KU’s legislative priorities, and they take action on KU’s behalf at critical points throughout the legislative session. To add your voice to our advocacy efforts, please join JHE.

Thanks again for your Jayhawk loyalty—and Rock Chalk!

Heath Peterson, d’04, g’09
President
