Each student organization on campus is required to have a KU faculty or staff member to serve as an advisor to the group.  On occasion, there is a student organization in need of an advisor.  Currently, Lutheran Student Movement, No Laughing Matter and Chinese Students and Scholars Association are all looking for a new advisor. 

Advisors are expected to do the following:

It is with extreme sadness that I make the KU community aware of the passing of Donald Peiffer, father of Randy Peiffer, custodial worker two in the HRLDS department.  Donald was a retiree from KU. He had been employed by facilities in the carpenter shop.  For those of us that had the pleasure of knowing Donald we would describe him as  kind, caring , soft spoken and well-respected man. His character is what this world needs and should have more of and he will be deeply missed. Please help us shower Randy with the support of our KU family at this very difficult time by sending messages of sympathy to his home address: 76 W. Penn St. , Lenhartsville , Pa. 19534 - 0043.
