The Rockhurst University Community Center exists to serve the unmet needs of residents in our neighborhood with particular emphasis on learning, leadership and service in the Jesuit tradition.
Rockhurst University is committed to inspiring hope in the lives of residents in our immediate neighborhood, with specific emphasis on the 49-63 neighborhood, and to building partnerships with neighborhood organizations. Our goals for the Community Center include:
- To create and extend free recreational and educational opportunities to neighborhood residents.
- To expand community service projects focused on meeting the needs of neighborhood residents.
- To develop working partnerships with members of our shared community.
- To encourage, support and promote participation in the daily life and events of Rockhurst by community members.
