HLC Institutional Actions Council continued the accreditation of the University of Missouri-Kansas City with the next Reaffirmation of Accreditation in 2029-30.
Reaffirmation is important because accreditation:
- affirms that UMKC is providing a quality education
- presents opportunities for UMKC continuous improvement of programs and operations
- provides UMKC with feedback
UMKC’s Assurance Argument
Over the past 18 months, the HLC committees and staff have worked hard to prepare UMKC for its comprehensive evaluation.
