Roo Welcome: Faculty, Staff, and Campus Partners

We encourage UMKC faculty and staff, departments, offices and community partners to get involved in our Roo Welcome programming. Help us welcome new and returning Roos to campus!


Roo Welcome is a time for our new and returning students to build relationships with faculty and staff who are dedicated to helping them succeed.

All UMKC faculty and staff serve a vital role in the Roo Welcome experience. UMKC faculty and staff are essential in creating a positive and welcoming experience for our new campus community members. 

Spring Roo Welcome 2024 takes place January 16 - February 2.
