In 1905, the University of Kansas Medical Center was established on the most eastern edge of Kansas facing West to remind us why we go to work: We work for Kansans.
That's why we work with communities in every county to enrich the health of Kansans.
A few things have changed since 1905. Today's health challenges are increasingly global. To remain steadfast in our dedication to the health of the people of Kansas, we also build partnerships and work to improve health beyond our state's borders.
Excellence in Community Engagement
The Institute for Community Engagement supports engaged scholarship across KU Medical Center. Engaged scholarship is practical work with community partners beyond our walls that propel communities and academia forward. Engaged scholarship advances KU Medical Center's mission: it is a mode of teaching, a method of research, an approach to clinical care and a form of service.
