Dear Jayhawks and Friends,

JJ O'Toole-Curran
Interim Executive Director, KU Memorial Union

The Union is the heartbeat of campus. Constantly beating with new and exciting events and programs, and 2023 was no different. We have the opportunity to provide spaces, food, course materials, and much more for Jayhawks during their time on campus and beyond. With the largest class in history, more than ever the union has been able to meet our mission and be a space for learning, working and serving the campus community. From orientation to graduation, we love being a part of every step of the way for our Jayhawks.
