The University is committed to having a diverse and inclusive community.
We launched the Diversity Expansion Scholarship to assist with attracting and retaining diverse students. This scholarship will be awarded to a student with demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion as it pertains to African American students.
The Divine Gardens on the UMKC Volker campus will be designed to honor and recongize the nine black Greek organizations, known as the Divine Nine. These gardens will represent those Greek organizations that have a presence on the UMKC campus, symbolically and physically. The Divine Gardens will serve as a gathering place for alumni and current students to come together, celebrate, meet and reflect. The Divine Gardens fund will assist in purchasing benches, plants and other memorial items for the Gardens.
The Black Alumni Alliance (BAA) was conceived as an organization dedicated to promoting and facilitating the engagement of Black alumni, sharing professional resources, and aiding the University of Missouri-Kansas City in the recruitment, retention and support of Black students at UMKC.
