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.
