Catalyst Magazine

President’s Message

Together we have accomplished an amazing goal: The Catalyst Campaign was the most ambitious fundraising campaign in UMB's history with a goal of $750 million. I am proud to say that we not only met that goal, we also surpassed it nearly six months before the campaign’s end.

UMB Center Helps Crime Survivors ROAR Back

“It is great knowing someone is on your side.” This is the typical response of the 250 to 300 people a year assisted by the Rebuild, Overcome, and Rise (ROAR) Center at the Carey School of Law.

Putting PATIENTS First

Thanks to the School of Pharmacy and its PATIENTS Program, distrust of medical research, which goes back generations, is slowly fading as the goal of reducing health inequities grows.
