All KU students are welcome to join. There is no application process or cost to join. If you believe in the importance of community involvement, want to cultivate your leadership skills, and meet like-minded friends, we’re the group for you! You can join at anytime during the semester by attending a meeting and introducing yourself to our SAB student coordinator.

Ready to join? Email or join us at one of our next meetings:

  • Monday, March 4, 5:30 p.m.
    • Dole Institute of Politics
  • Tuesday, April 2, 5:30 p.m.
    • Dole Institute of Politics

We hold regular meetings 4 or 5 times each semester.

In addition to attending meetings, SAB members are expected to volunteer for at least one evening program a semester. We help make the Dole Institute’s programs stellar by greeting and thanking program attendees, assisting with program seating, giving student welcomes to the Dole Institute, and facilitating audience Q&A. Volunteering at programs is another great way to get the chance to meet or talk with guest speakers.

Outside of our meetings, we promote all Dole Institute programs and initiatives on campus—sometimes this means tabling, posting flyers, chalking, making announcements to our classes, inviting our professors, or whatever to make sure people know about all the opportunities at the Dole Institute!

Active SAB members are rewarded. The more active you are, the more opportunities you will receive. This includes those coveted dinner invites, consideration for internship assistance, being assigned to special responsibilities at programs, or being considered for one of the Dole Institute’s paid student positions.

The Dole Institute is committed to universal accessibility in all programs and resources. We are in the process of making all of our web projects fully accessible. An accessible version of the material represented on this site will be made available upon request. Please contact us at to request the material be made available in an accessible format, or for general assistance.
