About

In recent years, the evolving landscape of higher education has challenged colleges and universities to reimagine how they do business. To realize considerable efficiencies, some institutions have or explored merging or partnering with other institutions. Shifting demographics, market competition, high student expectations and the pandemic have changed how institutions of higher learning serve their students.

Developed in consultation with all Roosevelt constituencies, the Building a Stronger University strategic plan seeks to improve program and administrative efficiency through collaborations with local institutions. With more online offerings, broader curricular choices and new technology platforms, Roosevelt will lay a deeper foundation for the future.

In March 2020, the Higher Learning Commission approved the integration of Roosevelt University and Robert Morris University Illinois. The combination of the two universities builds on historic missions that honor diversity and access to education. Roosevelt created the Robert Morris Experiential College and expanded extracurricular options to include new athletic programs, marching band, cheer/dance and eSports, to name just a few. See the full list of programs.

Through the Building a Stronger University strategic plan, the new Roosevelt will be nationally recognized as a catalyst for students from all walks of life to receive transformational learning experiences. Students who attend the expanded University will become socially conscious citizens who thrive in a diverse and changing world.
