As a student in the UK College of Education, you’ll find many opportunities to be involved in the life of the college and the university.
Involvement during college helps students gain a social and professional network. Plus, service learning allows students to identify, analyze and help solve real world problems. How will you make a difference in your academic study and in the lives of others?
With 15 student organizations there is sure to be a place for you!
Our student groups emphasize professional educator development. Undergraduates typically join groups identified with their major. Graduate students join the appropriate professional organization’s campus chapter. The college also sponsors social groups. Leaders from every student organization meet regularly with the dean to improve the educational and extracurricular experience for each student within the college.

Living Learning Communities
For those interested in UK campus housing, we even have a place where you can live! Do you like meeting people and hanging out with friends who share your interests? Several residence halls feature special programs for students pursuing the same academic focus. The UK College of Education’s EdLife Living Learning Community is for students interested in teaching. Our KHP Living Learning Community is for students interested in pursuing careers within the fields of kinesiology and health promotion. Both programs give you hands-on learning experiences, interaction with faculty and upperclassman peer mentors, special courses connected with the programs, and the chance to lead and teach others.
Locations: The EdLife community is located at Champions Court I (scheduled for completion in Fall 2014), and the KHP community is located at Ingels Hall.
