The Big Event is in search of individuals interested to fill some open positions on our executive board. We are excited about your interest in joining this organization as we continue to bring aspects of the KU and Lawrence communities together through service.

The Big Event’s mission is to unite KU students, faculty and staff with the Lawrence community, foster a culture of service through collaboration, and continue the tradition of giving back through our one big day, one big thanks, and one big event. As a student leader for The Big Event, you will have the opportunity to establish the groundwork for a long-lasting tradition.
