Kauffman School

Since 2004, the Honors College has proudly sponsored a partnership with the Ewing Marion Kauffman School. The Kauffman School is a free public charter school for students in fifth through twelfth grade, and its mission is to support and empower students to become eventual college graduates. Each year, the Honors College allocates several Work-Study positions for eligible students to work at the Kauffman School in administrative and classroom roles. In addition, honors students are proud to claim a strong track record of volunteerism at the Kauffman School.
