Welcome to the Mission and Ministry Office

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the Office of Mission and Ministry webpages at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri.

The role of the mission office is to continually place before all members of the Rockhurst University community the mission and core values of the University and to ensure that all decisions, conversations, policies and programs conform to these deeply held values.

As a Catholic, Jesuit school and a member of the worldwide network of Jesuit institutions of higher education, Rockhurst employs the ideals of finding God in all things, reflection and discernment as well as care of the person in all its programs, policies and interactions. The student, the parent, the alum and the community member are first and foremost in our minds and thoughts because all are children of God; all are part of this wonderful world God made, all are brothers and sisters of the Lord Jesus Christ.

As you take time to explore these pages know that we are always available to answer questions, provide guidance and assist in any way we are able.

May the Lord bless you and your family.
