Christina Lux

Christina Lux

University Unclassified Staff Employee of the Month
July 2012
Started: 2007
Current title: Assistant director of the Kansas African Studies Center
What that means: Lux’s duties include programming that includes a semester-long brown bag research talk series, regularly organizing participation in conference activities with other area studies centers, coordination of Foreign Language & Area Studies applications, center fellowships, federal data reporting; outreach activities and overseeing the work of the office manager and student employees.

Notable: Lux can handle the unexpected, such as covering the bases when the former KASC Director left KU. Without her careful attention to issues, several students would have not received stipends. She facilitates interactions among faculty members and students, draws graduate students into conference and research talk activities, and works closely with both clerical and student-hourly individuals. When Lux joined KASC she significantly increased audience engagement with the center’s Facebook page.
