About Roosevelt University

Roosevelt University, a private institution founded in 1945 on the principles of inclusion and social justice, has more than 4,000 students in five colleges. With campuses in the Chicago Loop and northwest suburban Schaumburg, Roosevelt offers 75 undergraduate and 15 graduate and doctoral programs across five colleges and online, including in arts and sciences, business, performing arts, education and pharmacy. During 2020, Roosevelt will mark its 75th anniversary with a yearlong program of special events.

Roosevelt has submitted an application to the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to make Robert Morris University Illinois a part of Roosevelt University. This application is subject to the approval of the HLC and the governing boards of Roosevelt and Robert Morris. HLC will need to take steps to review the proposal and will likely reach a decision in early 2020.
