Our Community of Care

KU is a place that cares about about each member of our Jayhawk community. In Diversity and Equity, we appreciate that academic and professional successes are integrally linked to the ability of students, faculty members, and staff persons to balance health and well being, family and social life, work, and other aspects of everyday living.  We also understand that the KU experience does not look or feel the same for all groups.  Thus, we strive to acknowledge our varied backgrounds, experiences, and cultures into the learning and engagement resources that we provide.  We are a resource for everyone.  Visit this page when you have questions, are looking for a community, need a place to turn, or just want to get involved and contribute to the richness and diversity of life on the campus.  Our KU community of care is for you.
