Connect with UMKC’s heritage and traditions during Founders’ Week Sept. 23 – Oct. 1. Founders’ Week is hosted by the UMKC Alumni Association around the anniversary date of Oct. 1; events throughout the week celebrate UMKC as Kansas City’s university and bring together students, alumni, and our community.
The week culminates with UMKC Family Weekend!
Events include the Regalia Run, film screening of Finding Dory, and KC Royals vs. Cleveland Indians game. Some events require registration and pre-payment—be sure to reserve your place early!
How much do you remember from your civics and American government courses? Test your knowledge in honor of Constitution Day!
Please join UMKC’s American Constitution Society (ACS) for a trivia competition over the lunch hour on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 in the School of Law Student Lounge. Refreshments will be served.
Constitution Day became a recognized federal holiday in 2004, when legislation authored by Senator Robert Byrd was signed into law. The Act mandates that all educational institutions that receive public funding provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on or near September 17th each year.
How does the UM System connect faculty, staff, and students to every corner of the State of Missouri?
Learn more with the UM System ‘At A Glance’ video series: get to know the mission, structure, governance, and history of the system, as well as how shared services keep education affordable in Missouri.
Take a last break before school starts and stop by the Toy and Miniature Museum–it’s free for UMKC students, faculty, and staff! On Saturday, 20 August, stop by between 10am and 4pm to invoke the power of your inner superhero–and save the museum from the evil Toynado in an all new scavenger hunt. Capes are optional!
The University of Missouri System has installed a new emergency alert program for the four campuses. The Rave program replaces the former Alert system but works in a similar manner. In the event of a natural disaster, violent event or weather-related campus closing, an alert message will be transmitted to all faculty, staff and students via email, voice and text.
We have scheduled a TEST of the new Rave program for Wednesday, June 29 at 1 p.m. The test is required by federal law. Recipients will be notified that this is a test of the new system, and not an actual emergency.
