Exhibition showcasing partnership between KU and Haskell Indian Nations University to open Feb. 15 in Haricombe Gallery

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

The University of Kansas Libraries will open a new exhibition in the Haricombe Gallery this February. “Side by Side” showcases the rich and long-held partnership between Haskell Indian Nations University and the University of Kansas.

The transdisciplinary exhibition will highlight programs, initiatives and scholarship that detail and celebrate the spirit of cooperation shared between these two institutions.

“The collaborations between Haskell Indian Nations University and the University of Kansas have been immensely rich and beneficial for both institutions,” said Kevin L. Smith, dean of libraries. “The libraries are proud to showcase these partnerships for many reasons, but especially because we benefit from the interactions with Haskell as much as do other units on campus. Students and faculty at both schools learn so much from each other because of the ways we work together.”

The opening reception will be held in Watson Library, Third Floor West, on February 15. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception, followed by a presentation by Dr. Venida Chenault, president of Haskell Indian Nations University, at 6:15 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public; those who plan to attend should RSVP to Jennifer Muse by February 9 at 785-864-8961 or

The exhibition in the Haricombe Gallery in Watson Library will be open to the public through August 2018.
