Immigration & DACA

Rockhurst is home to students, faculty and staff from many backgrounds and beginnings. Each person is a valued member of our community and adds a diverse perspective that helps us grow as individuals and as a University. We strive to be a welcoming and safe place for all – regardless of immigration status or nationality.

As our students seek to become 'men and women for and with others,' there is an abundant array of opportunities sponsored by our department to learn, lead, and serve – from here on campus to other parts of the world!
