Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to UMKC’s mission as an urban-serving institution. Kansas City is a particularly diverse city, including African, African American, Asian, Latino, Italian, Irish, German, Native American, Slavic, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern communities. Such ethnic diversity, in addition to our thriving neighborhoods of the Westside, Northeast Kansas City, and the Eastside, fosters creativity, connection, and innovation, which is showcased across the region. Major attractions such as the Annual Ethnic Enrichment Festival, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, the Filipino Cultural Center, the American Jazz Museum, Guadalupe Centers and Mattie Rhodes and Kansas City Irish Fest are a small sample of the many ways our diverse city enriches us.
For the reasons enumerated above, UMKC’s strategic plan prioritizes our commitment to multiculturalism, globalism, diversity and inclusion. The university’s values call upon its faculty, staff, students, and community to position themselves as global citizens who seek out, embrace, and celebrate the many benefits of diversity. Such commitment is demonstrated across teaching, service and research. We welcome applicants to share in our commitment to these core values and know that you will quickly understand learn the beauty of calling Kansas City your home.
