Campus Climate

UMKC is committed to cultivating an environment committed to civility and respect where all students, faculty and staff are empowered to purse their personal, academic and professional goals. The Division of Diversity and Inclusion seeks to track, assess and respond to current successes and challenges with regard to climate issues.

Diversity Data Dashboards monitor and make transparent demographic characteristics and trends of its students, faculty and staff to assist with progress forward.

While UMKC’s last climate survey shed light on areas of progress and growth needed, it was completed nearly a decade ago. A new Campus Climate Survey is being planned to capture additional perspectives and ensure voices from current students, faculty and staff are included, so that specific action development around outcomes address institutional changes and cultural shifts campus-wide.
