CAMPUS ROUNDUP

KU MEDICAL CENTER:

No one looks forward to paying taxes, but Kansas residents can help fight cancer while doing the inevitable this year. The File and Fight campaign allows Kansas taxpayers to donate to the Kansas Breast Cancer Research Fund while preparing their 2008 returns. By simply checking box 38C, a donation will be arranged. The campaign is the result of efforts by state Sen. Barbara Allen, R-Overland Park, and Roy Jensen, director of the KU Cancer Center.

EDWARDS CAMPUS:

On its 15th anniversary, enrollment spikes in the engineering and education schools increased second-semester enrollment at Edwards Campus by 3 percent. Engineering-school enrollment grew by 6 percent, and education enrollment increased 14 percent.

The increased number of careers requiring science, engineering and technology skills is partially fueling the increased enrollment, particularly in the constantly changing engineering field where new skill sets are in demand from employers.

"Regionally, economic demands are driving the growth in these fields and the burgeoning areas of biosciences, biotechnology and health care," said Bob Clark, vice chancellor of Edwards Campus.

Research recently conducted by an independent firm for the Edwards Campus shows there is significant need in metropolitan Kansas City for more talent, especially in science, technology and engineering. During a two-month period there were, on average, 1,140 unfilled jobs in these categories.

SCHOOL OF MEDICINE-WICHITA:

The William J. Reals galleries at KUSM-W will host a display of local artists starting in May. The Bottles of Hope program began as an idea by artist Tiny Watershied to give hope to and help in the healing of cancer patients. Anita Peeters, an administrative assistant in information technology, is coordinating the exhibit and public receptions.
