We convey an accurate and engaging history of the University of Kansas and share rich narrative with the public. We seek to build support within the greater KU community by depicting KU experiences. KU History shares these narratives through history panels, exhibits, online resources, and historical tours.

Today, KU Memorial Union staff continue its development.
