Cottey College Enters Partnership With the University of Missouri-Kansas City

The University of Missouri-Kansas City and Cottey College, a women’s college in Nevada, Missouri, have partnered together to offer Cottey students an easy transfer into the university’s School of Computing and Engineering.

Cottey College is a private liberal arts college that offers associate degrees and some bachelor’s degrees. In the fall of 2020, it enrolled just under 300 students.

Marjory Eisenman, the assistant dean of student affairs for the School of Computing and Engineering at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, stated that the partnership will help UMKC in recruiting more women students in male-dominated fields. “Kansas City is a great place to earn an engineering or computing science degree, so this is the best of both worlds for Cottey students – to start their education at a small, women’s college and graduate from a strong engineering or computer science program in an urban location,” she said.

Peter Hyland, an associate professor of physics and astronomy at Cottey College, stated that “this offers Cottey students an opportunity to take advantage of the impressive resources and knowledge that UMKC has, while they create their own futures. The high contact at UMKC that students have with future employers via internships is particularly exciting.”
