$80-100 million UMKC Med School expansion looks to have received some state funds in the new Budget. Around $40 million unless something changed in the final budget

There's a tweet from Bunch, obviously in support. Not sure where he got the render from.

It depends on what the additional funds will be spent on. More research facilities would likely improve UMKC's standing.

They need billions in capital investment to catch up to our peers across the state. Truman would also need a major revamp and expansion.

Very reliable source tells me their firm is working on a designing a new basketball venue for UMKC basketball team. Unsure on campus or the location yet. Also was told UMKC hasn't decided if they're gonna move forward with it, but this is definitely being considered enough so that they're designing it.

I'm guessing this has everything to do with UMKC trying to leap into Missouri Valley Conference.
