About


Since 1910, Rockhurst has carried the nearly 500-year-old tradition of Jesuit education. A tradition of learning, leadership and service that has transformed students’ lives for generations.

And now, it's time to celebrate that tradition.

On April 24, we invite the Rockhurst community to come together for a celebration unlike any other. We need your help to raise to continue providing transformative education in the Jesuit tradition.

Here’s how you can join the celebration:

  • MAKE A GIFT ON APRIL 24 between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. Gifts of any size make a huge impact!
  • BE AN ADVOCATE. Sign up to be an advocate and help spread the word with #CelebrateRU. The more you share, the greater your impact! Go to the Advocates tab to sign up and get started.
  • FOLLOW live updates on Rockhurst’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using #CelebrateRU. Check back on this page and keep an eye on your email inbox exciting updates throughout the day!

Let’s celebrate!
