KBK Council

With the goals of community-building, resource sharing, and personal and organizational development, the KBK Council aims to support the continued success of students and student organizations. The group consists of 16 representatives from Keith B. Key Center for Student Leadership and Service Office and Locker Tenants for that academic year.

Members attend in-person meetings regularly to collaborate on group-driven initiatives that support the Council's goals. These meetings will offer time to plan events for the greater student org community, network with fellow student org leaders, and serve as a sounding board for Student Org Team and other campus groups.

The KBK Council is advised by Cassie Smith, Coordinator for the Keith B. Key Center for Student Leadership and Service. Questions, whether it is about membership on the Council or how to collaborate with them, can be directed to Cassie at or 614-247-9533.



Membership on the KBK Council is open to lease-signing tenants of the Keith B. Key Center for Student Leadership and Service and requires the successful completion of an online application. Eligible members should be in good academic standing, and do not need to hold an official leadership title in their organization. Meeting attendance is required, and the dates and times will be included in the online application. Alternate members will be selected in the event someone is unable to fulfill the commitments of the Council.

Each organization is eligible to have one member on the Council, though multiple may submit applications. A selection committee of Student Life staff will review applications and make selections annually to bring together a diverse and representative group.

All student organizations are invited to collaborate with the Council and attend Council programs.

This application for the 2023-2024 year will be released on August 15 and explained during the KBK Tenant Welcome meeting. The application for the 2024-2025 year will be released August 13 and explained during the KBK Tenant Welcome meeting.
