Volunteers Needed for Week of Welcome


We are excited to welcome our new Roos to campus during UMKC Week of Welcome 2019! The events during this week unite new and returning students to celebrate our university’s vibrant campus life, while also energizing them as they transition to the new semester ahead.

We need your help to welcome new students in their first days at UMKC. Faculty and staff volunteers are essential to the success of these opening programs. There are many opportunities to support UMKC Week of Welcome programs, especially during our signature events prior to the first day of fall semester. These events take place Friday, Aug. 16 through Sunday, Aug. 17 and include Residential Life Move-In, Academic Unit Breakout Sessions, Class Photo, Convocation, Welcome Tailgate and Unionfest.

To volunteer for Residential Life Move-In, please sign up online by Tuesday, Aug. 6 at noon.

To volunteer for other Week of Welcome events, please sign up online by Tuesday, Aug. 6 at noon.

If you have any questions, please contact or 816-235-1407. More information on Convocation and Week of Welcome is available online.
