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 Activities 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.
