MAC Glynn Alumni Commons

Alumni educators, you successfully made it through the challenging 2020-2021 school year! You should all be very proud of your leadership.

We invite you to join fellow educator alumni for a campus happy hour to celebrate and kick off the upcoming academic year. Those who work in schools are welcome to attend! Teachers, Para-Educators, Speech-Language Pathologists, School Counselors, Therapists, Administrators, Social Workers, and Program Directors.

At the beginning of the happy hour, members of the JE Dunn team will host a private tour of the current construction of Sedgwick Hall at 6:15 p.m. This will be a special opportunity! Many of you attended classes within Sedgwick's historic walls and may be interested in viewing the reimagination (construction) progress. Please note, tour begins promptly at 6:15 pm. This will be a hard hat tour and safety is a top priority. Please wear comfortable clothing to walk in and closed-toe shoes.

In addition, we will have members of the inaugural class of RU's newest Ed.D. program share their reflections from the first year. This will be a time for you to meet fellow educator professionals for conversation and connection.

Register TODAY. Your $5 registration includes appetizers and RU gifts for your classroom. A cash bar will be offered.

We hope you can join us! Questions? Please contact Hannah Tarwater at

*Please note: we are paying attention to the Delta variant and KCMO's mask mandate and will notify you of any changes or cancellations.
