Chancellor talks about Big 12

Tue, 09/06/2011

LAWRENCE – Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little today addressed the ongoing questions surrounding the Big 12 Conference.
"It's obviously disappointing that it has come to this point.  Keeping the Big 12 strong and competitive remains our top preference, but no matter what happens we're going to continue to work in the best interests of the University of Kansas.  That's our number one priority and it's what we've been focused on throughout the process as we've looked at all our options when it comes to conference realignment,” she said.
Gray-Little said that KU appreciates the interest that alumni and fans have expressed throughout the process, and that she and Athletics Director Sheahon Zenger will continue to keep the KU community updated.
