RU magazine contains news and feature stories about the university — faculty, students and alumni. Beginning with the summer 2013 issue, the magazine was redesigned with a new name, look and feel to better reflect the Rockhurst University brand.

RU Magazine Mission Statement
RU magazine gives alumni reasons to be proud they are a Hawk. For readers who are familiar with Rockhurst, it continues the conversation about looking at the world through a service-oriented lens, leading the way and striving to do a better job today than yesterday. Because the magazine is an extension of the Rockhurst University brand, newcomers to the conversation will know this Catholic, Jesuit institution is Where Leaders Learn in a challenging, yet supportive, environment from notable faculty. We will tell our stories in a highly visual style, and in a tone that is inspiring, genuine, powerful and welcoming.

Past issues are available in PDF format, which require Acrobat Reader, or in a searchable, interactive format beginning with the winter 2013 issue. Printed copies of some issues also are available. To request a copy, contact the editor at katherine.frohoff@rockhurst.edu
