1 The University of Missouri Kansas City Search for Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences THE POSITION The University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC) College of Arts and Sciences invites nominations and applications for the position of Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The Dean provides academic and administrative leadership for the College, and reports to the Provost who also serves as Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. THE ORGANIZATION The University of Missouri Kansas City is a public, comprehensive, research University with twelve schools and colleges offering more than 125 degrees, including 50 masters and doctoral degrees. UMKC serves over 14,000 students of which 61% are undergraduates, 26% are graduate students, and 13% are professional students. UMKC is large enough to provide a broad range of educational and social opportunities, but small enough to retain a sense of community and belonging. Approximately 26% of UMKC students are members of underrepresented groups and 3% are international students, representing more than 49 countries. The freshman average ACT score is 24. UMKC is highly engaged with the community and economy based on a three-part mission focused on health and life sciences, visual and performing arts, and urban engagement. The University is a major player in the region s growing life science initiative through its Schools of Business, Pharmacy, Biological Sciences, Computing and Engineering, Dentistry, Medicine, Law, Graduate Studies, and Nursing, as well as the College of Arts and Sciences. UMKC has a full range of graduate and professional schools. This mix offers opportunities for innovative research, partnerships, and educational programming that span traditional disciplinary boundaries. The University has a beautiful urban campus located in the center of Kansas City s cultural zone, a part of the city encompassing museums, two premier research institutes, a renowned technical and research library, and Kansas City s Country Club Plaza and Westport shopping and entertainment districts. Numerous industry leaders such as Sprint-Nextel, Black & Veatch, the Kauffman Foundation, Burns & McDonnell, American Century Investment Management, H&R Block, Honeywell, Garmin, Bayer, Cerner and Hallmark have a strong presence in Kansas City and provide students with numerous learning and employment opportunities. A high percentage of UMKC graduates choose to remain in Kansas City upon graduation. UMKC has made a strong commitment to expand its recruiting strategies and its on-campus student life activities. As a result, the University s student demographic profile is changing to include more full-time students and individuals from beyond local regions. The University has recently completed a new residence hall, a student apartment complex and a student union that have substantially enhanced on-campus accommodations and the student life experience. Additions to the library are currently under construction.

2 THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES At UMKC's College of Arts & Sciences, there are courses that span the arts, sciences, and humanities. Small class sizes mean students are not just a number at UMKC. Because the campus is located in the heart of Kansas City, students can enjoy a small liberal arts and sciences college environment, and still benefit from the advantages of an urban setting. The College is organized into 18 departments that offer instruction in specific academic disciplines. In addition, students may choose degree programs from several interdisciplinary study areas. Undergraduate programs have a common set of general education requirements designed to ensure that graduates develop the necessary skills to function in our complex society. Students ready for graduate study will find a full range of programs from which to choose. Vision Statement UMKC's College of Arts and Sciences will be a model urban liberal arts and sciences college reputed for both traditional and cutting-edge undergraduate and graduate academic programs; a highly diverse and dynamic faculty, staff, and student body; an active engagement with its city and region; and a strong commitment to excellence in teaching and research. Mission Statement UMKC s College of Arts and Sciences promotes the development of an enlightened society by fostering the discovery of new information in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences, and by making its educational resources widely available to the public. Through teaching, research, and service, the College enhances and enriches the intellectual, cultural, and economic well-being of the city, the region, and the State of Missouri. Capitalizing on the diversity and expertise of its faculty, the College provides the graduates of all of the university s academic divisions a solid foundation in the liberal arts and sciences. With emphases on writing, critical thinking, and interdisciplinarity, the College s academic programs introduce students to the major branches of knowledge and to research methods in the various disciplines and professional programs. Upper-division and graduate programs prepare students for leadership roles in the arts, sciences, business and industry, education, government, health organizations, and social-service agencies. The College is committed to life-long learning and civic engagement. The primary academic missions of the College of Arts and Sciences are teaching, research and service. Through these functions, the College serves the community, the state and society at large. The research and scholarship of the College's faculty not only expand the body of knowledge generally, but also enrich and enhance its teaching and instructional programs. Most departments of the College offer both undergraduate and graduate study. The College enables students to develop the creative, analytical and communication skills which sustain a lifelong educational process. In addition to serving its own students, the College provides instruction in the liberal arts and sciences for students in the UMKC professional schools. Through its continuing education division and certificate programs, the College also serves individuals and groups in the community. The general degree requirements designated by the College give students a breadth of knowledge, enabling them to understand and appreciate the many facets of human experience, to make meaningful relationships between the various fields of knowledge, and to increase their understanding of themselves, their interests and special abilities. The general requirements and introductory courses allow for maximum freedom in selection of a major field of study and

3 provide the basic knowledge for that particular field or for the choice of a bachelor of liberal arts degree with no major. Work in the major field of study provides students with a comprehensive and systematic introduction to a field of scholarship and prepares them to function in the professional fields of their choice. Should a student choose to go beyond the baccalaureate degree, the major provides a solid basis for graduate study. The objective of the total academic program of the College is to engage students in study that will enable them to work competently in their chosen fields or pursue graduate work, while at the same time developing a breadth of knowledge in the arts and sciences. In that way, students can understand their specializations in the larger context of the intellectual and social life of the community. NOTABLE RECENT ACHIEVEMENTS AND POINTS OF PRIDE OF THE COLLEGE The College of Arts and Sciences has had three Guggenhiem Fellows in past two years. The College of Arts and Sciences has 14 Curators' Professors, the highest level of professorship which is awarded by the University of Missouri System. The College of Arts and Sciences had over $6,000,000 in research awards and over 150 publications in FY The College of Arts and Sciences played a central role in UMKC becoming one of only nine U.S. schools to receive $1 million from the Osher Reentry Scholarship Program. The College of Arts and Sciences is integrally engaged in UMKC s mission (initiatives) in the life/health sciences, visual and performing arts, and urban engagement. KEY RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE DEAN The Dean is the chief academic and executive officer of the College of Arts and Sciences who provides leadership and vision for the development and implementation of the College s strategic future.
