The Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas promotes political and civic participation as well as civil discourse in a bipartisan, balanced manner. The institute provides a forum for discussion of political and economic issues, fostering public service leadership and encouraging participation in the political process. The institute offers programming and exhibitions related to the political lives of U.S. Senator from Kansas Bob Dole and his wife, Secretary of Transportation and U.S. Senator from North Carolina, Elizabeth Dole, and it also holds an archive of their papers. With funding from Humanities Kansas, the state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, in 2021 the Dole Institute created a temporary exhibition reflecting on Bob Dole’s early career in politics through the words of his constituents.
