Education

Rockhurst University Who we are Founded by the Jesuits in 1910, Rockhurst is a comprehensive university that offers more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs taught by nationally recognized faculty. Rockhurst emphasizes learning, leadership and service. Mission Rockhurst University exists to transform lives by creating a learning community centered on excellence in undergraduate liberal education and graduate education. Rockhurst is Catholic and Jesuit, involved in the life and growth of the city and the region, and committed to the service of the contemporary world. Academics The Jesuit tradition of focus on individual dignity runs through the curriculum, which is based on the seven classical modes of inquiry: artistic, historical, literary, philosophical, theological, scientific relational and scientific causal. Accolades Rockhurst University has been ranked among the top master's universities in the Midwest by U.S. News & World Report. It also has been ranked among the nation's top 30 wireless college campuses by Intel. Rockhurst is the only institution in the Kansas City area to have earned the community engagement classification from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Faculty A 12:1 student-faculty ratio fosters rich campus discussions and wide opportunities for student research. Average class size is 24 students. Professors, as opposed to graduate teaching assistants, teach freshman courses. Ninety-two percent of full-time faculty hold the highest degree in their field. View our Student/Faculty Videos for more information. Commitment to Service Students receive two transcripts when they graduate–one for academic work and another for their service activities. Each year, Rockhurst’s Center for Service Learning matches student volunteers with more than 100 local organizations in need. Rockhurst students give more than 30,000 hours annually in service to others. Distinction In 2003, the prestigious Carnegie Foundation named Rockhurst as one of 12 national leadership sites for the scholarship of teaching and learning. In 2006, Rockhurst was selected as one of 12 colleges and universities nationwide to lead an effort to improve teaching in higher education. And most recently, in 2010, the foundation recognized the University for the strength of its community outreach efforts by awarding Rockhurst its community engagement classification. Rockhurst is the only institution in the Kansas City area to have earned this high honor. Alumni While more than half of Rockhurst's 25,000 alumni live in the Kansas City metropolitan area, every state in the U.S. and many foreign countries are influenced by the Rockhurst alumni who live there. Rockhurst graduates serve as executive leaders for major companies and organizations in Kansas City and throughout the country
