Welcome

On behalf of the Division of Student Affairs, we are excited that you are a member of the Roo family! UMKC is not simply a place to go to earn a degree.  We accept you as you are and will help you become more self-aware and able to relate to others who may or may not have similar backgrounds or experiences.  While we have many wonderful and exciting programs and events to promote your learning and development, our primary goal and responsibility is to you, our students.

With each interaction we seek to challenge and support you through your journey, help you to understand your capacity for leadership and service, and give you the tools and confidence to create the future you deserve.  It is our hope that when you graduate from UMKC, the world will see a human being who is motivated, self-aware, and well-prepared to contribute and make positive change on a global scale.
