K-12

Members of the Boys and Girls Club after-school program enjoy Dole Institute programming.

The Dole Institute offers a variety of educational programming to fit the needs of your students, including onsite visits to the Dole Institute, outreach visits into your classroom, or online access to our digital archives!

On-site

Visit the Dole Institute of Politics with your K-12 class or homeschool group for a personalized session focusing on the leadership and legacy of Senator Bob Dole. Field trips are available year-round. Bring your class or group for a guided tour of the gallery, archives, and more!

Outreach

The Dole Institute can bring the archives to you! Our public education coordinator can visit your classroom for a customized workshop focusing on primary sources from the Dole Archive. Any of these programs are also available as an on-site activity. Click here to view documents used in this dynamic workshop.

Online

Access the digital archive collections online for thousands of digital documents and photographs. We are slowly digitizing our materials – at about 85,000 pages, we are only 1% complete! Authentic primary sources are an excellent use of resources for Kansas College and Career Ready Standards.

We can also present to your class virtually via Zoom.
