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.


Inclusive Excellence

The University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) is pleased to present our 2017-2018 Inclusive Excellence Plan. The plan represents a campus-wide diversity and inclusion blueprint for making concerted progress in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The 2017-plan will replace UMKC’s 2014 Diversity Strategic Plan (which was based on the Inclusive Excellence Framework)i, making certain to preserve previous action steps that were in progress. Similar to UMKC’s Diversity Strategic Plan, academic and administrative units will report their progress to the UMKC Chancellor’s Diversity Council through reports and yearly presentations.
