Student Involvement

Do you want to help shape the future of the University Honors Program? Then it's time to get involved!

All Honors student organizations aim to foster participants' communication and leadership skills while giving them a voice within the program. Additionally, joining these groups can allow you to make new friends, network, develop valuable professional skills, and learn more about Honors and KU.

  • Honors Seminar Assistants assist instructors in teaching sections of HNRS 190: Honors First Year Seminar.
  • Peer Mentors serve as a resource for incoming freshmen and host social events in Nunemaker Center.
  • Student Ambassadors meet with prospective Honors students and serve as the face of the University Honors Program.
  • The Co-Curricular Advisory Board advises Honors staff in planning relevant and engaging out-of-the-classroom events for Honors students.
  • The Honors Community Advocates (formerly Honors Student Council) is an official KU student group that plans social activities and advocates for Honors student interests.
