Special Events


Postponed until we can join together safely

Throughout the year, KU hosts events both on and off campus that address specific student populations. The best way to be notified of upcoming events like these is to join our mailing list — if one seems like a good fit for the kind of student you are, we’ll make sure to invite you when events are rescheduled.
