    School Overview

    The University of Kansas City was chartered in 1929, and one year later, Kansas City businessman and philanthropist William Volker donated 41 acres to the university. In 1931, Volker acquired and donated the Dickey mansion, which would house the first library, classrooms, cafeteria and administrative offices. In 1963 UKC became a part of the University of Missouri System. Since then, UMKC has continued to expand and is now a public research university focused on urban issues.
