Get Involved

Student Advisory Board members celebrate the start of a new school year with a program featuring New York Times reporters Nicholas Fandos and Seung Min Kim.

KU students are the lifeblood of the Dole Institute and its mission. As a KU student, the Dole Institute is here to give you the experiences you need as you become our country’s next generation of public servants and leaders. 

From the Institute’s Student Advisory Board to KU Civic Engagement Week, from volunteerism to historical research, from internships to networking with experts at the Institute– there are options to fit every major and every schedule.

Get involved at the Dole Institute – it will be one of the most impactful decisions you will make at KU.

To start, I’d suggest you: 

  1. Join our student mailing list for current and upcoming opportunities. All KU students are welcome to join the Student Advisory Board
  2. Attend the next SAB meeting. Meetings take place the first Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at the Institute during the fall and spring semesters. 
  3. Follow the SAB on Instagram.

See what public programs are coming up by looking at our website’s event calendar and email if you’d like to volunteer.
