  2. 2. Strategic Planning • Over eight months, Rockhurst University, the Kansas City planning department and the community worked together to create a 20-year master plan for campus development. • These improvements are one part of the university’s 2007-2012 strategic plan. • The next slides will outline some of the major projects that will commence in the next few years.
  3. 3. Phase 1: Troost Avenue Parking Garage • This mixed-use parking garage will be just north of Rockhurst Road on Troost Avenue. • It will provide 400 parking spaces, in addition to bringing retail opportunities to the neighborhood. • This development will move cars off the street, tie in with public transportation and provide economic opportunities.

Phase 2: Academic Building • The academic building will be built on the Rockhurst campus, on what is now a parking lot. • It will feature a 500-seat lecture hall, black box theatre and faculty offices. • This will be a modern academic space that will enhance instruction and promote interaction spaces that keep students engaged.
  8. 8. Phase 2: Residence Hall • A new residence hall will also be built next to the new academic building. • This will provide more space for our growing population of students.Allowing them to live on-campus means they have more opportunities to be involved at Rockhurst. • The residence hall will also feature up-to-date amenities.

  11. 11.
