Chancellor’s Medal

The Chancellor’s Medal is the highest non-academic award presented to a volunteer.

This medal, given at the discretion of the chancellor, honors those who have shown UMKC generous support and service. In the 50-year history of the Chancellor’s Medal, UMKC has been bestowed it on 60 recipients. Medalists represent the fields of commerce, art, education, law, politics, religion, child welfare, urban design, sports, music, medicine and journalism. UMKC is proud of the history and tradition surrounding this custom of recognizing community members who work on our behalf.
