Giving to Bioengineering


Ad Astra Per Aspera

The Kansas state motto is ‘Ad Astra Per Aspera,’ which is Latin for ‘To the stars through difficulties.’ While astronauts Joe Engle, Ron Evans, Steve Hawley and Loral O’Hara, alumni of the University of Kansas, have taken that motto literally, so does KU Bioengineering. Our faculty and students continually strive for excellence. Many of the activities of KU Bioengineering are only possible through the generous gifts from our donors. The continued support of our alumni and friends is critical to ensure that KU Bioengineering has the resources to enable it to continue producing the best graduates possible.
