In 1933, Kansas City leaders embraced the belief that their city could never achieve greatness without a great university. In the heart of the Great Depression, they dug deep and started a university that to this day is deeply engaged in making Kansas City a great place to live, work and learn. That's UMKC's legacy - UMKC is Kansas City's university. Our Strategic Marketing and Communications staff embraces that mission. We believe that UMKC's academic excellence, impact on the lives of students, deep community engagement, research and tradition of service - are stories that simply can't be told enough.
Our award-winning team of writers, designers, editors, marketers and web developers work collaboratively with the campus and community to spread the word about UMKC. Our full-service support agency strategically plans and delivers communications, marketing and advertising support. We work to build the overall brand of the university but also help individual academic units develop distinct brand identities that connect with - and boost - UMKC's overall brand. Our goal is simple: Make sure that everyone knows the treasure they have in their midst. UMKC - Kansas City's university.
