Preparing Educators as Leaders

Compete, create, explore, grow.

As a student at the KU School of Education, you'll fit right in.  We continue to offer you a variety of ways to get involved; to meet and engage with fellow students; to explore academic opportunities; and to gain more than an education while at KU.  In addition to the student organizations available in education, there are more than 600 clubs on campus to get involved with.  The KU Student Involvement & Leadership Center (SILC) prepares students to become contributing citizens of society by providing meaningful co-curricular experiences.
