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.
