By , March 19, 2013 8:36 am

With summer and fall class schedules now available on-line, no doubt you’ve already received an e-mail with your registration appointment.  But what should you do between now and then to make enrolling go more smoothly?  To start, meet with your academic advisor to figure out what classes you should be taking and to confirm that you are on-track for graduation.  You may want to consider summer classes to get ahead.

Before your enrollment appointment, check to be sure you have no holds on your account.  The most common types of holds are academic advising holds and holds for having an outstanding balance on your account, although there are others too.  Any holds you have will show up on the main menu of your Pathway account.

Last, don’t forget your enrollment appointment!  Although you can enroll any time after this appointment date and time, the sooner you enroll the better your chances of getting the exact schedule you want.

Remember that you need to click on the “details” button to show the time you may begin registering.  Open registration begins on April 22nd.

Celebrate Women Making History in Kansas City

By , March 19, 2013 8:34 am

[The following was submitted by the College of Arts & Sciences, Division of Continuing Education]

Local civil rights legend Julia Hill and UMKC educator Mary Ann Wynkoop will hold a public conversation entitled “A Celebration of Kansas City Women Making History,” Wednesday, March 20, at 6:30 p.m., in the Truman Forum Auditorium, Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library.

Newly retired from the executive board of the local NAACP, Hill will discuss her devotion to social justice as well as her activism during the civil rights movement to the present. In the 1970s, she served as president of the local NAACP, fighting to ensure that the school district and local companies hired and promoted African Americans. Hill was a member of the Kansas City School Board at the height of its desegregation case in the 1980s, and became its president in 1990.

Wynkoop is retired from UMKC, where she was an assistant professor in the Department of History and director of the American Studies Program. She writes and lectures on American studies, women’s history, post-WWII American history, the Civil Rights Movement, and film history.

The event is co-sponsored by the UMKC College of Arts & Sciences Division of Continuing Education and the Kansas City Public Library. Admission is free. A 6 p.m. reception precedes the 6:30 p.m. event. RSVP online or call (816) 235-6496.
