The faculty at UMKC is friendly, knowledgeable, and equipped to do their job. Most of the classes I have been in have been relatively small, which is nice becuase this makes it much easier to connect with teachers and students. UMKC offers a wide variety of majors, events, and opportunities for each and every student to participate in. The UMKC environment is condusive to learning. There are many computer labs and coffee shops throughout campus available for students to take advantage of as they study or even just want to hang out with friends. The scenery throughout the UMKC campus is beautiful in all seasons, and correct measures have been taken to make the campus environment feel safe.

UMKC offers top notch programs and countless resources to their student. Although UMKC is a beautiful campus, it is located in a high-crime area of Kansas City. The professors at UMKC are very understanding and provide opportunities for extra assistance with courses. UMKC promotes that it's campus is highly commuter friendly, but it lacks many resources, involvement opportunities, and academic assistance to the many commuters who attend. The diversity at UMKC is unmatched.
I am a Junior in the University of Missouri-Kansas City's School of Nursing and Health Studies program. I appreciate the intimate class sizes and have had several dynamic, passionate professors throughout my courses thus far. The instructors are always willing and available to help explain areas that require extensive clarification. Supplemental instruction, something I benefit from, is offered for several courses and they have concrete plans to expand this program. The School of Nursing and Health Studies is affordable, competitive, and hold high expectations for their students. An area that could use some improvement is organization. For example, there is a deadline for clinical requirements and they were not addressed until mid semester this year. Another area of weakness could be communication between faculty and staff. There was a change in the plan of study that a professor let me know about and my academic advisor wasn't aware of the change until I brought it to her attention.
