Meet The Alumni Leaders

Out of 25,000 strong, 10 Kansas City alumni were chosen—based on their record of academic excellence, industry accomplishments, and commitment to service and their community—to be featured in RU's visibility campaign. These trailblazers exemplify that Rockhurst really is the place where leaders learn.

Alumni answer the question,
“Why is Rockhurst a place where leaders learn?”
