Federal Partnership

KU Lifelong & Professional Education (LPE) at KU Edwards Campus proudly extends the University’s educational training resources to federal agencies and their employees.

LPE applies the educational values that make KU a world-class center of learning to our catalog of training courses, programs and symposia for working professionals. We also partner directly with businesses, industry representatives and government agencies to assess workforce needs and develop training programs for their employees. As part of the Federal Executive Board partnership with the University of Kansas, a 10 percent discount is offered to federal employees for many of our most popular courses and programs.
