A Life's Work
By Dale Seuferling
As I approach retirement this summer and my time as KU Endowment president nears the end, I find it rewarding to reflect on the past two decades as our team’s captain. The job and work required has been what you would expect to run an organization with 160 staff members and assets of nearly $3 billion providing about $200 million in support for the University of Kansas each year.
