Preparing Educators as Leaders

Education Advising Center at KU

At the KU School of Education, we are preparing educators as leaders. Our dedicated academic advisors at the Education Advising Center are with you from day one. But we are more than advisors. We are academic success coaches. We serve as your primary connection to the various professional & social networks available.  Let us open your eyes to the academic experiences you never expected at the KU School of Education.

Our Education Advising Center staff work with undergraduate students before and after they are admitted to the professional Teacher Education (TE) program(s) as well as those who are admitted to the professional Health, Sport, & Exercise Sciences (HSES) programs.

Appointments are available year-round on weekdays. We also staff an additional two academic advisors conveniently available in Robinson Center for admitted athletic training, community health, exercise science, and sport management students. Drop-in appointments are accepted, however we prefer to schedule an appointment with you so that you don't have to wait for too long. To schedule an appointment, please call the KU School of Education Welcome Center at 785-864-9616 or email us at soeadvising@ku.edu.

The Education Advising Center is located in 210 Joseph R. Pearson (JRP) Hall, and is home to six dedicated academic advisors who work to provide education students with everything they need to be successful at KU.
