Welcome from the Deans
Welcome new parents and family members, and welcome back returning Roo families! We are excited to help you stay involved, get connected, and support your student's success at UMKC.
We have launched one of UMKC's favorite traditions: Summer Orientation. We encourage all incoming families to visit the Parent and Family Virtual Orientation Platform, full of resources created just for you.
Parents and family members are critical partners in upholding UMKC community values. In creating this partnership, we want to acknowledge another essential UMKC tradition: building a community of learning that values accountability, respect, collaboration, integrity, and safety for all of its members. We encourage you to learn more about UMKC priorities and how our key values are put into action in this university-wide statement. We also encourage you to learn more about UMKC's #RoosUnited campaign, highlighting our commitment to pursuing justice and equity.
With Roo Pride,
Todd Wells and Keichanda Dees-Burnett, Co-Interim Dean of Students and Vice Provost for Student Affairs
