Higher Education

UMKC

In the grantmaking category of Higher Education, the Foundation considers grants for select programs that are considered centers of excellence.  The Foundation recognizes the link between Higher Education and the economic vitality of the Kansas City region. When the University of Missouri – Kansas City (UMKC) started to outgrow its School of Computing and Engineering (SCE) facilities due to rapid enrollment growth it carved out a space on the dense Volker Campus for a new building to serve SCE students and began a diligent capital campaign.  UMKC realized the importance of leading-edge laboratories and technology for today’s students along with the growing need in Kansas City for college graduates in science, technology and engineering fields to fill jobs.  The new facilities will allow enrollment in SCE to grow from 1,800 to nearly 3,000 students over the next several years. For more information about UMKC and the SCE project please visit their website.
