Cura Personalis

The theme for academic year 2014-2015 is the Rockhurst University Core Value of "Cura Personalis".

Cura Personalis

“Care for the Whole Person”

Our Jesuit Heritage:

God desires all persons to discover how to live more fully, more freely, and more authentically as the people God has made us to be.  To help people do this, we honor, care for, and educate the whole person by encouraging all people to strive after intellectual, physical, artistic, social, psychological, moral, and spiritual health and well-being.  In our human relationships, we respect and nurture the whole person, not just on our campus, but in the neighborhood, city and beyond.

At Rockhurst:

We are committed to caring for others in and outside the classroom; therefore, we strive to help people:

·         To understand their inherent human dignity.

·         To reach their greatest human potential.

·         To share their experience and knowledge with others.

·         To act in a way that reflects this growth.

Rockhurst University Jesuit Mission
