- Administrative Associate, Senior
1450 Jayhawk Blvd.
Lawrence, KS 66045
Lauren was raised in Lawrence and graduated from KU in 2013 with a degree in Applied Behavioral Analysis. She went on to teach kindergarten and earned a master's degree from the University of Saint Mary in Elementary Education. In 2018 Lauren switched to the corporate world and was the assistant office manager for the Lawrence Arts Center and later the Project Coordinator for Mayhew Environmental Training Associates.
Lauren was drawn to the DEIB position while looking for more cause-driven than profit-driven work. She is looking forward to combining skills gained in the corporate and non-profit sectors at DEIB and being part of an organization making a positive impact on the greater KU community.
In her role, Lauren will support the Office of DEIB in their work to create an equitable and inclusive environment for the Jayhawk community. All scheduling requests for Dr. Hodges Persley and Erin Duran should go through Lauren.
