Volunteer

YOU CAN GET INVOLVED! 

At UMKC, volunteers give of their time and expertise on alumni committees, advisory boards and friends organizations. They mentor our students, advise our deans and help us grow. Each year around 2,000 volunteers donate more than 140,000 hours of their time.

UMKC is proud to have more than 60 constituent organizations working on its behalf. If you have an interest in serving on an advisory board, joining a committee or volunteering in support of an academic unit, contact us at alumni@umkc.edu or at 816-235-1563 and our staff will be happy to match you to a meaningful volunteer opportunity at UMKC.
