Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Fostering a welcoming environment for all members of the KU Law community is essential to achieving the law school’s educational mission.
Three advisory committees at the law school – the Faculty & Staff Committee on Diversity & Inclusion, the student-led Dean’s Diversity Leadership Council and the alumni Diversity Advisory Council – support diversity and inclusion through workshops, events and presentations.
Through pre-law and recruiting programs, career development and training opportunities, KU Law is dedicated to increasing access, support and representation within the law school and the legal profession.
Programs and Initiatives
Student affinity organizations at KU Law provide support and advocacy for students of all backgrounds. Organizations promote community involvement, plan service and social activities, and collaborate to recruit and mentor new students. Membership is open to all students.
The University of Kansas is committed to fostering diversity, equity and inclusion practices across campus. Law students are encouraged to engage with campus offices and resources.
