“I got to walk alongside other people who were pursuing the same degree, so as we worked towards our doctorate in education, we were able to collaborate and work together and be a part of the journey with other people who were also mission-focused and very driven in their pursuit of education in our world today.”

“I don't care about the glory of it. I just want to help people in the best way that I can. There's a saying that, ‘They may not remember your name, but they remember how you made them feel.’”

“What I’ll remember the most is the time that I’ve spent directly connecting with my faculty. Some of my instructors have become some of my closest friends, and I continually reach out to them for advice, to share successes or get a different perspective on something—that’s one of the most valuable things I’ve received here.”

“When I discovered Rockhurst was developing an Ed.D. program, a supportive faculty was a key factor for my application. Having completed my M.Ed from Rockhurst University in 2018, I knew firsthand the exceptional level of support that is given by faculty to the students. Considering a research topic that some would consider controversial felt like a risk. However, all of my professors have found ways to not only mention but celebrate diverse populations and cultures, including the LGBTQ+ community in their courses. For that, I am very grateful.
