Letters to the Community

Roosevelt University was founded in 1945 on the principle that every qualified person should have access to an exceptional college education. Today our mission is stronger than ever, lived fully each and every day in the way that we challenge our students to make the most of themselves and the world around them. Our faculty are passionate about connecting classroom instruction to real-world opportunities, and our staff are dedicated to providing top-of-class student services. We believe that every student who walks through Roosevelt’s doors should receive a world-class educational experience and every member of our community is deeply committed to delivering on that promise.
