.UMKCUA. UMKC University Archives
The University Archives is the official repository for records of permanent administrative value created by the University of Missouri-Kansas City campus, and for materials of historical value related to university functions. The University Archives supports UMKC’s teaching, research, service, and administrative activities by collecting and managing archival, manuscript, audiovisual, electronic, print, and object collections related to the university’s history and traditions. The archives also document prominent faculty, staff, alumni, and supporters’ careers and activities. Records in University Archives date from 1895, beginning with the Lincoln and Lee University movement to establish a university in Kansas City, to the present. The archives’ mission is to ensure both current and future researchers will have access to UMKC historical resources to understand and interpret the university’s history and campus experiences.
