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.

Standing just outside the Spencer Research Library, Lauren Erickson, associate director of KU Marketing Communications, spotted her favorite redhead as she lined up with other Commencement marshals before the procession began. Lauren, a proud redhead herself, loves that Big Jay also dons the same do. “I had this great vantage point to see all the grads, their families, and even Big Jay running around, hugging, smiling — I wanted to capture some of that pre-ceremony buzz.” She first became a marshal four years ago and enjoys the thrill of putting on a fancy blue gown with jaunty cap and reliving her own walk down the Hill nine years ago: “I love seeing the look on the grads’ faces as they realize how important this KU tradition is —how meaningful and significant.” It warmed Lauren’s Jayhawk heart, just as it does ours. Congrats and Rock Chalk (again) to the Class of 2015!
