On Thursday, January 10, UMKC Chancellor C. Mauli Agrawal, Provost Barbara Bichelmeyer, and their chiefs of staff met with members of IHD to learn more about the Institute. The visit included a private meeting with IHD Interim Director George Gotto followed by a group meet and greet. The UMKC leaders learned about IHD’s overall mission and objectives, as well as some of our current projects and programs and how they align with UMKC’s strategic plan. IHD staff members shared about their roles, job functions, and current projects. The Chancellor and Provost expressed their support for IHD as well as a desire for us to share our expertise through more interdisciplinary collaborations with UMKC faculty.

We are grateful for their visit, and look forward to more opportunities to demonstrate how we are working to fulfill UMKC’s mission.
