A Letter From The President

Thank you for visiting KUCTC.

We're busy making changes to improve your interactions with our organization. Our team is committed to your success and we welcome the opportunity to be of service to you. One visible change that is coming soon is the upcoming launch of our new web portal.

The theme for the University of Kansas' strategic plan is Bold Aspirations. It serves as the touchstone for our transformation and is the foundation for the clear focus and targeted investments KUCTC is making to improve outcomes.

The first step is improving our organizational structure to enable effective and efficient working relationships. We're making measured changes to help:

  • Faculty, industry and foundations engage in research relationships
  • Companies to easily find and license existing technology
  • Entrepreneurs launch new ventures using KU technology

There will be more announcements and a more robust web portal launched Spring 2013. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact anyone on our staff and always feel free to reach out to me directly.
