Community Engagement Center

The Community Engagement Center (CEC) in Poppleton is where local residents partner with UMB on mutually beneficial goals. The CEC serves adults and children and offers a variety of programs that leverage University resources to meet community-identified needs such as exercise, food, and after-school and educational programming

Upcoming Events

The CEC hosts a monthly community meal to bring neighbors together with University students, faculty, and staff. It is one of our longest-standing programs and consistently enjoys huge attendance. Since opening in October 2015, we have welcomed over 38,000 visitors to the Community Engagement Center.

Come check out our wide variety of programs that provide opportunities for neighbors of UMB!
