The KU HealthPartners board of directors is comprised of a diverse group of School of Health Professions (SHP) and School of Nursing (SON) faculty. In addition to the executive committee leadership, elected and appointed directors complete the board of directors roster.
Serving as Ex Officio members, the board of directors executive committee membership includes the Senior Vice
Chancellor (SVC) of the University of Kansas Medical Center; the Dean of each of the Schools, the Executive Director
of KU HealthPartners; and the Administrative Officers of each of the Schools. At the present time, Karen Miller,
RN, PhD, FAAN serves as Board of Directors President, and represents the interests of the SVC and Deans of the Schools
of Nursing and Health Professions.
Additionally, four members of the board are appointed (two each from the KU School of Health Professions and KU School of Nursing) and four
members of the board are elected (also two from each school). Appointments are made by the Dean
of each respective school; elected positions are filled through a nomination and voting process. All appointed and elected directors serve two-year terms. A fifth elected at-large position is filled by a director from either the KU School of Health Professions or KU School of Nursing.
