The future belongs to those who relentlessly pursue their vision. At UMKC, our alums are no exception. From entrepreneurs to educators to researchers — our grads excel everywhere.

Paving the Way

Award-winning teachers. Senators. CEOs. Pulitzer Prize winners. Nurses. Surgeons.

The list doesn’t stop there. UMKC alumni are among some of the most impressive in their fields and are paving the way toward success. With the knowledge, help and resources UMKC provides, you too can be amongst our alumni who are making their mark in the world.

In the Heart of Kansas City

UMKC has proven that home really is where the heart is. More than half of all UMKC alumni have built more than just an education here. They live and work in Kansas City, which is home to 57,000 companies — from small startups to Fortune 500 firms. A large percentage of alums also work elsewhere in the U.S. and internationally — their skills and expertise spanning across 59 countries.

Giving Back 

No matter where UMKC alumni plant their roots, they have built and maintained a strong network of support — for each other, for their communities and for the Kansas City community. Hundreds of thousands of hours are donated in volunteer work from over 2,600 alumni and friends. Scholarships and research opportunities are funded for students annually. Campus buildings are updated to enhance learning environments. And so much more — all thanks to our alumni.

Whether you want to give back, network with fellow alumni or serve and volunteer for a number of boards and committees, UMKC is unwavering in providing a foundation of resources, connections and benefits for its alumni.
