Campus Master Plan
Through a thoughtful process of conversations, considerations and consensus, Rockhurst University developed a campus master plan based on the strategic direction of the University and discernment of community input. There were many conversations with faculty, staff, administration, alumni, students and neighbors. The Rockhurst University Campus Master Plan has been adopted by the City of Kansas City, Mo., as a planned development zone.
The campus master plan has been amended to allow the University to break ground in February on a new addition to the University’s student housing options, Rockhurst University Row Housing.
Updates on the progress of this project will be available here and sent via community newsletter. Neighborhood leaders will also be updated via the Rockhurst Neighborhood Committee.
The Rockhurst University Neighborhood Committee (RUNC) was born from the development of the campus master plan. RUNC membership includes representation from 49/63 Neighborhood Association, Troostwood Neighborhood Association, Troost Plateau Neighborhood Association, Southtown Council, UMKC Community Affairs, Rockhurst VP for Facilities and Technology, RU Security, RU Public Relations and Marketing, RU Community Relations, RU Associate Dean of Students, and RU Chief Financial Officer. The RUNC discusses topics pertaining to the master plan, campus sustainability, community safety, public engagement, healthy neighborhood and youth development and student-neighbor relations.
