Trying to spot a Roo? Look for those powering our community — making discoveries, serving others and generating growth. Kansas City is stronger with Roos taking the lead.
A vibrant community like Kansas City doesn’t thrive on ideas. It thrives on action. UMKC is proud to be part of the fabric of Kansas city, engaging daily with the local community and working side-by-side to solve real-world problems

More than half of our 135,000 alumni live and work in Kansas City, driving the city’s workforce, economy and culture. And as the most diverse campus in the region, we provide thousands of new workers each year, adding to the rich community we all call home.

Looking for Kansas City’s top schools for business, computing and engineering, arts, medicine, nursing, dentistry and pharmacy? We’ve got those too. Excellence is ingrained into everything we do, from our largest research endeavors to each individual student experience.

Even as you read this, our UMKC community is turning their dreams into action. RoosDO.
