LAWRENCE — The University Career Center at the University of Kansas will host a Part-Time Job Fair from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, in the Kansas Union fourth-floor lobby. KU students who want to work part-time during the school year will have the opportunity to visit with KU employers and off-campus employers from the Lawrence and Kansas City area about job opportunities. For a list of participating employers, visit career.ku.edu.  The fair is designed to simplify the search for a part-time job.

The University Career Center is located in 110 Burge Union. Part-time job vacancies can be found at career.ku.edu/ptjobs. This site is updated daily and provides information about both on-campus and off-campus employment opportunities for students. 



As KU senior Ashlie Koehn helped prepare a meal of horse and goat — she is studying abroad in Kyrgyzstan — she got a Skype call from Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, telling her she had been named a 2015 Truman Scholar. Koehn is majoring in environmental studies, economics, and international studies. She chose Kyrgyzstan, her third study abroad experience, to increase her cultural competency and sharpen her Russian language skills. One of Koehn’s favorite things about the country? The beautiful mountains and lakes. She plans to use the $30,000 Truman award for graduate study in the economics of climate change. While she appreciates Kyrgyzstan’s mountains, her environmental pursuits concern her own native plains. “As a fourth-generation Kansan, I am deeply concerned about how climate change will affect the lives and livelihood of Kansans.” Read more about Ashlie Koehn and her surprise Skype with the Chancellor: http://bit.ly/1awodaa
