2018-2019 Chair Welcome

Dear UMKC Staff –

In preparing for an exciting and dynamic year, your Staff Council wants you to know that we are ready to SERVE!

To achieve excellence in anything requires honest communication, personal sacrifice, teamwork and commitment. We plan to bring all of these to cultivate an environment of shared presence with the administration, faculty and students.

We hope to accomplish a lot this year! One of our priorities will be on building relationships with supervisors to improve and increase engagement with our campus community. We also hope to increase awareness and recognition of staff achievements and accomplishments at UMKC.

As Staff Council chair, I encourage and welcome each of you to get involved. There are several university leadership meetings I partake in to provide staff perspectives on university strategies and policies. Please share your questions and thoughts with me, so that I may share your concerns directly with members of the administration. You can also attend any of our general Staff Council meetings or our committee meetings. We’ll be updating our website with events open to staff this year.

On behalf of Staff Council, thank you for all you do to make UMKC an institution of choice for all.

Roland Hemmings
