Who should attend High school students of color

Leadership Symposiums are for students of color in 9th-12th grade.

What to Expect

Our college preparation events, known as Leadership Symposiums, are held in the fall. More information on our fall 2017 events will be available in the summer. Typically, these are all-day events at the Kansas Union and include

  • a keynote address by a KU faculty member
  • two working breakout sessions
  • an introduction to KU and preparation advice by an admissions representative
  • a free lunch

How do I register?

Students can register for a Leadership Symposium through their high school counselor.

How much does it cost?

$15 per student. Counselors will only be charged $15 to attend, even if a counselor chooses to attend more than one symposium.
