Leadership in the Jesuit Tradition may be defined as the following: Leadership is an overflow of spirit that inspires and influences others to join together to achieve worthy purposes.

We aspire that all members of our Rockhurst community be encouraged and supported to fully grow and mature as individuals and leaders. Our desire is to call each of our students to achieve the following objectives:

  • Understand your uniqueness. Develop your capabilities, your values, and your worldview.
  • Develop life-long skill in self-examination focused on aligning actions with core values and personal goals.
  • Motivate yourself and others to recognize and pursue worthy aims.
  • Confidently innovate and adapt to lead with integrity in a changing world.
  • Through service to others, learn to engage others with a positive, loving attitude.

At Rockhurst University, leader development is the unifying force of Rockhurst's educational mission. Our mandate is to “achieve national recognition for leader formation through integrative learning experiences that prepare the student for life-long transformational service."
