Bob Dole, KU Endowment Life Trustee, Leaves Legacy of Leadership

KU Endowment leadership and staff joins in mourning the death of Sen. Bob Dole, a life trustee on KU Endowment’s Board of Trustees. He was 98.
Dale Seuferling, president of KU Endowment, extended his deepest condolences to Dole’s family and loved ones.
“Sen. Dole touched many lives through his distinguished career in public service not only in the State of Kansas, but throughout the entire world. A true World War II hero, we were honored to have him serve as a life trustee on our board,” Seuferling said. “KU Endowment is a better institution thanks to his dedicated service and commitment to our organization.” 
As a KU Endowment life trustee and a KU alumnus, Dole was a passionate advocate and supporter of the university, inspiring many to give to initiatives that were close to his heart, including veterans’ issues, support for people with disabilities, and medical research in cancer and spinal injuries. With his wife, Elizabeth Dole, also a former senator and head of the American Red Cross, they devoted their lives to public service.
“We will forever be grateful for his dedication to public service, particularly in educating younger generations of Americans that service to your country through politics is an honorable profession,” Seuferling said.
