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.

diversity, equity and inclusion.
