Office of the Provost

Centers and Institutes

Centers and Institutes provide a multidisciplinary approach to research, education, training and public service. Their purpose is to enable faculty members and students to work with one another, with other institutions and with representatives of the civic, corporate and philanthropic communities on issues, projects and programs related to UMKC’s academic strengths and interests. Centers and institutes report to the Provost’s Office and are evaluated every five years.

The Program Evaluation Committee is charged with the annual reviews, five year reviews, and initial reviews and recommendations for the establishment of new centers and institutes.
