Chancellor's Diversity Council

We are dedicated to cultivating an environment of civility and respect; providing a diverse learning environment; recruiting and retaining a diverse campus community; and promoting collective ownership of diversity initiatives across the campus.

Diversity at all levels is critical to UMKC’s mission of providing an environment defined by the belief that a multiplicity of values and beliefs, interests and experiences and intellectual and cultural viewpoints enrich learning and inform scholarship. Respect for the culture that makes UMKC a dynamic teaching, research and service environment is a basic institutional value. The Diversity Council reaches across the institution to promote access, respect, inclusiveness and community in all of UMKC’s working and learning environments.
