Our Mission

To be an open and dynamic
environment where the KU community comes together for individual and collective discovery.

Dear Jayhawks and Friends,

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

The Union prides itself as being the heart of campus. We are honored to provide safe and engaging facilities where students, alumni, and all fellow Jayhawks are welcome. There was a normalcy to the first week of classes in Lawrence that we haven’t experienced in a couple years. A lot of smiles in our buildings brought about by crowded hallways, seemingly lost students, and coffee lines. We’re fortunate to be some of the first people to meet new students and help them feel like part of the campus community.

I greatly appreciate all our departments constant flexibility in problem solving and commitment to service.
