What does it mean to be a Mule or Jennie? You are part of a community that takes pride in hard work, innovation, diversity and a spirit of service.

For more than 150 years students have embraced the culture and spirit of the University of Central Missouri. Each generation of students upholds UCM's time-tested traditions, modernizes others and creates their own. We invite every student to become an official UCM Traditions Keeper!


Get started by signing in to Presence with your account.

Scroll to "Traditions Keeper" in the center of the page.
