Our Shared Values: Activism in Action

Excellence

Our students deserve the best education possible. Through reflection and innovation, Roosevelt continues to develop new programs, resources and services.  As the world changes, so do we.  We prepare creative, collaborative, critical thinkers for success in an unknowable future. Each year, nearly $1 million in donations to the Annual Fund help support the day-to-day operations, initiatives and people that directly impact the quality of our students’ education.

Eliminating Barriers

Access to an education is a democratic right.  Roosevelt will do our part to eliminate the financial barriers that keep students from successfully completing their degree. That’s why we continue to allocate a higher percentage of our annual budgets to need-based aid — maximizing the financial assistance available to qualified students. In fact, 4 out 5 Roosevelt students receive institutional scholarships or grants each year.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We will make our community more equitable for all, and we will confront the racial and socioeconomic achievement gaps amongst our students.  We are well underway. Our newest DEI initiatives — within teaching, research, assessment, racial and ethnic identity; experiential learning, and student support—are all 100% donor-funded.

Stories of Inspiration. Stories of Impact.

Each gift has a story of its own. And with time, this story grows — as does the impact the gift has on Roosevelt's community. These are the stories of the generous donors and students behind recent gifts.

Building a Roosevelt Legacy

When you include Roosevelt University in your estate plans today, you are choosing to support the Roosevelt students of tomorrow — ensuring their access to an education grounded in excellence, diversity and equity. Your estate gift will lay the foundation for the University's future, while making certain that your personal philanthropic intentions are honored.
