Student Development:
Creating A True Student Experience

Welcome to Student Development and Athletics! Whether you are a student, parent/family member, or a faculty or staff member, I encourage you to use this website as a valuable resource for information about our department and issues of importance to the student experience outside of the classroom at Rockhurst.

Student Development and Athletics is one of several departments on campus who seek to enrich your student experience through out-of-classroom programs, events, and student organizations. A quick glance at our department’s webpages will highlight the numerous opportunities for developing yourself as a leader and learning to serve others. It is our hope that students’ lives will be transformed in big and small ways through involvement with our staff and department-sponsored groups and activities – and ultimately that students will not just meet, but surpass the goals that they set for themselves at Rockhurst.

Given that we are a vibrant and dynamic community, things change and evolve over time for the University and our students during the course of an academic year.  Knowing this, I would encourage you to stay “in tune” with Rockhurst happenings by regularly checking our website, the University Calendar, and - if you are a student - your Rockhurst email.

Student Development Offices are located in the Lower Level of Massman Hall and the main Athletic Office can be found on the first floor of the Convocation Center.  Please don’t hesitate to stop by to request information, ask questions that you may have, or just visit with our staff.  We are also only a phone call or email away!
