Alumni are a vital part of the success achieved within the School of Nursing and Health Studies. The program depends on graduates to support our strategic vision and long-term goals by providing scholarship funds, program enhancement, volunteer work and recruitment of high-quality students and faculty.

We rely on graduates to spread the message about our academic excellence in order to build a strong future for the university’s success. Some graduates serve as classroom speakers, community outreach facilitators and role models for our students.

There are numerous ways to show your support for UMKC and the SoNHS. A few ideas:

  • Bring your family and neighbors to several organized events — Founder’s Day, a Roos basketball game or a Conservatory concert — held throughout the year.
  • Pop in to say hello to a favorite professor, grab lunch at the union or take a stroll through campus.
  • Join the proud contingent of UMKC volunteers who give 200,000 hours of time to the university every year.
  • Pledge a financial gift of support to advance the SoNHS programming.

Have an idea? Let us know. We welcome guests to drop in. Come to reminisce or help chart our path to the future. Whatever the reason, consider yourself welcome at UMKC for life.
