Finding Community

Nontraditional students are an important part of the diversity that makes KU a rich and interesting place. At the Student Involvement and Leadership Center, we help ALL students explore their options, with special attention to non-traditional needs. While we can only give you a snapshot here, for more information come by our office in the Kansas Union or Contact Us.

Making An Impact

The mission of all Leadership Programs is to engage all students in developing their own personal philosophy of leadership, which includes understanding themselves, their peers, their community, and ultimately the world around them. Whether for a semester-long program or one hour, you'll learn and develop leadership skills that will take you to the next level.
