KU Federal Relations

Hall of the StatesFederal Relations represents students, faculty, alumni, and the Jayhawk community in Washington, DC.

Because the U.S. government is a key partner in providing KU with resources to deliver the best undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees to our students, Federal Relations works with Congress and all federal agencies to identify possible research or education partnerships.

As required by the Lobbying Disclosure Act, all official KU requests for meetings with the Kansas congressional delegation must be coordinated with Federal Relations.

Jack Cline, director of federal relations, is based in KU’s Washington office, which is located in the Hall of the States (pictured), 444 North Capitol Street, NW, Suite 221.

Explore KU: The Bells of Mount Oread KU’s Campanile, a 120-foot-tall timepiece that tolls automatically on the hour and quarter-hour, not only sounded in the 2015 New Year at midnight with 12 mighty gongs, but also regularly rings up memories for many Jayhawks – the 277 faculty and students who gave their lives during World War II, the graduates who walk through its doors at commencement, and aspiring students who have strolled through the Lawrence campus. (See http://bit.ly/1xjjwJj). For nearly 60 years, KU’s 53-bell carillon has been tolling the sounds of peace and serenity across Mount Oread since it was installed in June 1955 inside the landmark World War II Memorial Campanile, which was dedicated in 1951. (See http://bit.ly/1BoL9jv) The carillon is also a four-octave musical instrument, which is played with a giant keyboard and foot pedals. University Carillonneur Elizabeth Egber-Berghout (http://bit.ly/14fiBPl), associate professor of carillon and organ, climbs 77 steps up a spiral staircase in the bell tower to perform recitals several times a month.
