The purpose of the University of Missouri-Kansas City Retirees Association (UMKCRA) is to promote the needs, interests and welfare of all retired UMKC staff and faculty and to actively support the mission and goals of the University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Missouri System. Information necessary to achieve these objectives is identified, collected and distributed appropriately through this website, the UMKCRA newsletter and other special communications.

In addition, the Retirees Association provides its members with opportunities for socialization and shared experiences in various formats. These events include Fall and Spring luncheons, invited speakers, selected area trips, stage and musical performances, and other sponsored activities.

We are currently making updates to this website to make it more accessible and user friendly for you! We hope you'll take the opportunity to use the links at the left to browse around. Should you have questions, contact Joe Constantino at
