Site Selection: 21st Century College, 21st Century City

Kansas City is quickly becoming known as one of the leading “Smart Cities” in America, and University of Missouri – Kansas City (UMKC) is educating the innovative talent needed to move the city into the future, according to a new article by the Site Selection team.

Located in Missouri’s second largest city, UMKC was founded in 1929, and is the largest comprehensive, fully accredited university in the Kansas City area. The 93-acre urban campus is home to more than 11,000 undergraduate students from all 50 U.S. states, and more than 85 countries. This diversity, along with its urban setting, gives the campus a modern and energetic feel.

At UMKC, students can choose from more than 120 academic programs and majors, including degrees from the Henry W. Bloch School of Management and the schools of medicine, computing, engineering and education. While outside the classroom, UMKC students can explore more than 175 clubs and 15 Greek-letter organizations.

“UMKC, with its top rated programs in the arts and theatre, its various schools in the medical disciplines, biological sciences, engineering, management, and education, has all the elements that are needed to make a great university,” said UMKC Chancellor-Designate C. Mauli Agrawal.
