Company

University of Kansas

In 1866, the University of Kansas welcomed the first class of 55 students to an unfinished building on a modest hill called Mount Oread. From that treeless ridge, KU flourished into the state's flagship institution — a premier research university that claims nearly 30,000 enrolled students across five campuses. Together, Jayhawks power Kansas and transform the world.

We call ourselves Jayhawks. These mythical birds embody the KU community's guiding values: perseverance, positivity, and restless innovation. We fly high because we start at the top.

You can get a job many places. But, if you want to feel, understand, know and believe you are changing the world, become a Jayhawk!

At the University of Kansas, we celebrate and value differences in perspectives, experiences and cultures.
