A Time for Celebration: Congratulations UMKC Graduates! #Classof2020RooStrong

While we can’t be together in person to show our pride and offer our congratulations, we are showering our Spring 2020 graduates with virtual pomp and circumstance! Each school is hosting an online celebration – with traditional graduation festivities – at the original graduation times. The best part: Graduates will see and hear their names called during the virtual ceremonies.
