Fall 2015 Research


UMKC works tirelessly to be a model urban research university characterized by signature graduate and professional programs, a dynamic undergraduate population, a highly diverse faculty, staff and student body, and active engagement with its city and region.


The School of Education continues this tradition with world-class scholarship and creative activity designed to enhance education and our urban communities by:

  • Expanding relationships in the Kansas City area to ensure that UMKC is embedded in the fabric of the community and that the community is embedded in the University;
  • Expanding opportunities for extraordinary scholarship and creative activity;
  • Facilitating the exchange of the rich intellectual and cultural assets of UMKC and of the Kansas City community;
  • Creating cross-disciplinary programs, at all levels, and aligning with strong community partnerships; and
  • Strengthening the PK-20 educational pipeline through strategic alliances with area school districts and community colleges.

We are committed to arming education professionals with the knowledge, skills and experience they need to have a real and lasting impact and we invite you to join us in our efforts.
