Community Outreach

Finucane Student Service Project

Rockhurst University is located in a diverse, historic neighborhood that is home to educational, cultural and scientific institutions. The area is steeped in culture, grassroots activism, ecological and historic preservation and revitalization.

A strong community is instrumental to the vitality and diversity of our university. Rockhurst takes pride in working with our neighbors to create a safe, secure, integrated and healthy neighborhood offering ever higher qualities of life. We continue to promote a welcoming, thriving environment for our students, staff, faculty, guests and neighbors as we strive to fulfill our mission of learning, leadership and service in the Jesuit tradition.
