The School of Architecture and Design Alumni Symposium was designed to engage and spotlight the work of our talented alumni. The School of 12K aims to bridge the gap between our current students and faculty and the working professionals who call KU their alma mater. The 12KU Alumni Symposium is an opportunity for all alumni to gather, connect and reconnect, earn continuing education credits and be recognized for their pioneering and impactful work. For specific questions or inquiries, you can contact us at
