The Student Union (2010) is LEED Gold Certified.

The University of Missouri-Kansas City takes seriously its role as Kansas City’s university. That commitment is evident in the 2014 master plan, which envisions growth that benefits not only students and faculty but also the Kansas City and Missouri communities.

Since the 2008 update to the master plan, extraordinary new buildings have transformed the campus landscape while winning honors for their aesthetics, innovative design and environmental sustainability. The construction projects described in the 2014 master plan will advance UMKC’s strategic plan while continuing this trajectory of excellence.
