As a public, urban university, one of our most important goals is to benefit the Kansas City community. Our relationships with schools and organizations across the Metro promote cultures of collaboration, diversity and academic excellence in the UMKC community and beyond.
Community Counseling and Assessment Services
Available to both the UMKC and external communities, Community Counseling and Assessment Services offers an array of psychological and educational resources at an affordable cost. Services include counseling for individuals and groups, assessment of learning and mood disorders, assistance for refugees and immigrants, and more.
Urban Education Research Center
Educators across the country benefit from the findings of the Urban Education Research Center, which collects data to improve the lives and opportunities of urban youth. Our faculty use cutting-edge analysis to find new solutions for students, teachers, administrators and communities.
