Policies & Procedures
Our services are available to all KU students. Our primary mission is service to students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the schools of Architecture, Education and Social Welfare. Separate career centers are maintained for students in Business, Engineering, Journalism, Law. and Music. UCC, Business, Engineering, Music and Journalism share a common recruiting database that includes resumes of students and alumni, current career opportunities posted by employers/recruiters and career center staff, part-time jobs and internships.
The University Career Center of the University of Kansas is a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and abides by the guidelines of professional standards and ethics as outlined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers. We encourage our professional associates and students to follow these same guidelines. Please visit the NACE website for further information. www.naceweb.org
Third-party recruiters may post positions for employment candidates, but must inform our recruiting professionals of the actual employer and position before the job will be posted.
The professional staff of the University Career Center reserves the right to decline postings that require a financial investment by our students, or postings for positions that may involve unreasonable risks where known, or postings for positions that conflict with the NACE principles of professional conduct.

University statement on military recruitment on campus
The university has been asked whether ROTC or other military recruiters are allowed to recruit and be present at job fairs on campus. Lynn Bretz, Director of University Communications, issued the following statement for the university:
“The University of Kansas allows military recruitment on campus, as required by federal law. What’s more, the university values ROTC's presence on campus and the service of our citizens in the national defense system. The university also acknowledges that some individuals in our community oppose the ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy of the U. S. Department of Defense. Those individuals have the right to protest the policy, just as students have the right to choose whether or not to seek career opportunities and service in the military.”
(Note: The "Don't ask, don't tell" policy was repealed on Sept. 20, 2011)
