Roosevelt has submitted an application to the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to make Robert Morris University Illinois a part of Roosevelt University.

HLC will need to take steps to review the proposal and will likely reach a decision in early 2020. Visit Building a Stronger University for more information.
