UMKC is known as Kansas City’s university. The School of Science and Engineering (SSE) was established through UMKC Forward – https://www.umkc.edu/chancellor/initiatives/umkc-forward.html, a university initiative that called for the joining of all the computing, science, mathematics and engineering programs into a single academic unit.
This was a bold move by the university to create multidisciplinary learning, academics, research and civic outreach for the benefit of all students, faculty, alumni and friends. This new structure creates opportunities for shared experiences, interdisciplinary course options, broader learning engagement and inspired new collaborative research endeavors. UMKC students are always looking to what’s next, and so is our university. UMKC has an ambitious vision for the future. We hope you’ll join us as we work to become the best university we possibly can.

UMKC Statement on Diversity
Diversity, equity and inclusion are central to the UMKC mission as an urban-serving institution. Kansas City is a particularly diverse city, including African, African American, Asian, German, Irish, Italian, Latino, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Native American and Slavic communities. Such ethnic diversity, in addition to our thriving neighborhoods of the Westside, Northeast Kansas City and the Eastside, fosters creativity, connection and innovation, which is showcased across the region. Major attractions such as the Annual Ethnic Enrichment Festival, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, the Filipino Cultural Center, the American Jazz Museum, Guadalupe Centers and Mattie Rhodes and Kansas City Irish Fest are a small sample of the many ways our diverse city enriches us.
For the reasons enumerated above, UMKC’s strategic plan prioritizes our commitment to multiculturalism, globalism, diversity and inclusion. The university’s values call upon its faculty, staff, students and community to position themselves as global citizens who seek out, embrace and celebrate the many benefits of diversity. UMKC received the Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) Award in 2019 in recognition of our continued commitment to equity and inclusion. Such commitment is demonstrated across teaching, service and research. We welcome applicants to share in our commitment to these core values and know that you will quickly understand the beauty of calling Kansas City your home.
