Keep Every Roo Safe

Return to campus is abruptly approaching!! Check out the UMKC Coronavirus web page for up to date information regarding guidelines for health and safety as well as local Kansas City orders.

The website also has information regarding symptoms to watch out for, requirements for monitoring one’s temperature, and how everyone can do their part to help keep our campus clean and healthy.

In the Campus Spaces section, you can find valuable information about what classrooms, offices, and other UMKC spaces and facilities will look like. You can also check out Marketing and Communication’s “Top 10 Roo Responsibilities to Each Other” for a condensed version of some guidelines.

Here’s to a safe, healthy, and exciting Fall 2020 semester for all – and a giant THANK YOU to everyone who has a hand in keeping our campus safe and clean!
