Student Organizations

Student organizations give you the opportunity to learn leadership skills, organize events and meet students from all over campus.

Global Languages Club

Cinco de Mayo celebrations, German film festivals, crêpe making, foreign language open-mic nights and more! Join the Global Languages Club and get to know students of many different nationalities whose passion for learning and speaking foreign languages unites them.



The word may mean "something of little value or not worthy of attention or appreciation" in Arabic, but Baladí is also the name of the Spanish-language literature magazine at UMKC that has garnered much attention and appreciation. In addition to printing creative writing, art and photography, the organization hosts open mic nights for spoken word artists.

For more information about both groups, please email faculty advisor Alberto Villamandos.
