Who We Are

The Young Alumni Council offers events and programs for Kansas City’s 3,000 graduates from the past 10 years who are under the age of 35. The council fosters an important connection to the University and establishes a positive, lasting relationship between Rockhurst and its young alumni.

Each member helps promote the interests of the University and its young alumni, assists in planning and coordinating young alumni events in Kansas City, and works alongside the Office of Alumni Relations to engage alumni with their alma mater.
