KU Communities

A number of individuals make up the KU Community, and we all work together to help students succeed academically and beyond. The University Career Center is dedicated to assisting students throughout the career development process in face-to-face settings, through career development courses, by presenting in classes and student group meetings (Request a workshop now!), by speaking to parents, through career fairs and events, and by providing quality web resources. Please contact us for more information on how we can assist you: ucc@ku.edu/785-864-3624.

Students and Alumni

Career development and the job search process can be a fun and challenging experience. A number of resources are available to help you. In addition to some of the more common career development resources and processes, further resources exist to assist communities of individuals such as LGBT students, student veterans, alumni, and students with disabilities through this process.

Faculty/Staff Members and Parents

Faculty and staff members of the University of Kansas and parents often serve as allies for students. Specific resources are also available to help you further assist students and connect to resources and opportunities.
