  • For Julie Jorgensen, being a Jayhawk is a dream come true. "KU has given me opportunities and memories that I will cherish for a lifetime," Julie said. "My favorite part about being a Jayhawk (so far!) is the opportunity to serve as a Peer Advisor. Through this program, I have had the chance to work with all the amazing students on this campus as well as grow into the person I am today."

    Rock Chalk, Julie. Thanks for all you do to help support the students on campus.

  • When thinking of a lab, images of sterile spaces, white coats and Petri dishes may come to mind. KU professor Katie Rhine and her team had something else in mind. They envisioned a humanities-based “lab” that would bring faculty and students together in the field to address health issues in East Africa’s rural communities.

    In 2018, their vision was brought to life in the form of an interdisciplinary umbrella project, ColLAB: Bridging East Africa’s Digital Health Divides.
