University of Kansas Student Chapter of AGC (The Associated General Contractors of America)

A first step toward becoming a Professional Constructor

Membership in one of AGC's 150 nationally chartered student chapters offers an extraordinary opportunity to learn more about construction, to further develop your abilities, and to observe at close quarters the industry in which you will work after graduation.

Just as a building or suspension bridge is greater that the sum of its parts, an educational experience is also more than the combination of academic and practical experiences. For this reason, we believe that your membership in an AGC student chapter will prove to be a wise step.
