Kansas City Kansas Community College (KCKCC) values our faculty and their contributions, which are central to our students’ success and in fostering a campus community that is inclusive and engaging.

The current master contract between the KCKCC Board of Trustees and the Faculty Association of KNEA, which represents unionized KCKCC faculty, was agreed to in 2023 and expires June 30, 2024. The next round of negotiations between the College’s administration and the faculty begins in May.

On this webpage, you will find news and updates about the bargaining process and archives of past bargaining sessions and college-wide communications.
