Shared Governance

Participation in faculty governance process - whether on committees or in the Faculty Senate - helps UMKC continuously improve and protect faculty rights.

UMKC practices shared governance with faculty, staff, students, and the University of Missouri Board of Curators. Faculty members serve on committees that recommend academic curricula and academic personnel policies, engage in strategic and financial planning; develop policies that guide the general operations of the university; and serve as a forum for communication between faculty and administration.

UMKC's Faculty Senate website provides information on Faculty Senate and related committees. Individual academic units also have governance committees.
