About Us

The Neighborhood Advisory Council (NAC), launched by the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) in 2016, is a successor organization to the Volker Neighborhood Council (VNC) that operated from 2002-2015. This partnership between UMKC and the surrounding neighborhoods recognizes that we all share the respectful use of the land we occupy.

This organization represents a partnership between UMKC and the surrounding neighborhoods to promote respect, collective understanding and collaboration.

The NAC is a group that moves together towards a mutual goal—a vibrant, working neighborhood that serves the needs of those who live and work within its borders.

Service on the council does not require that you currently or previously served your neighborhood in a leadership capacity, only that you desire to do so now.
