Kendyl Grender

Event Coordinator in Lawrence, Kansas

Attend my event

I’ve always had a strong passion for engaging people with a broader community mission. As the Events Coordinator here in the UCC my job highlights just that by connecting and engaging students with knowledge and ideas outside the confines of a classroom; I have the ability to support students as they become participants in their own success.

A Kansas transport from Kentucky, I earned my Bachelor of Arts from Morehead State University in History before arriving at KU to receive my Master of Arts in Museum Studies. A curious learner at heart I’m an advocate of eclectic knowledge, but my professional interests strongly focuses on marketing outreach and community engagement through educational pedagogy in informal learning environments. Outside of the office I’m the type of person to make homemade pasta on a Tuesday and campfire coffee on a Saturday. Above all I’m a travel obsessed, adventurous go-getter with a keen eye for creative thinking and problem solving.
