Contributing to Our State

The University of Kansas aspires to be a top-tier international public research university. While our aspirations are global, our mission begins right here in Kansas, where KU works to build strong Kansas communities and empower Kansans to live happy, healthy lives.

KU works for Kansans in various ways. We provide healthcare services to underserved counties, ensuring that all Kansans can get the care they need, close to home. We partner with rural entrepreneurs to help them grow their business. We monitor water levels in western Kansas and help energy companies find new ways to harvest oil and natural gas throughout the state. We train 8,000 law enforcement officers and 7,900 firefighters and first responders each year to help protect Kansas communities. And we collaborate with Kansas science teachers to develop new curriculum for students across the state.

KU is proud to work for Kansas.
