Roosevelt University has submitted an application to the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to make Robert Morris University Illinois a part of Roosevelt University. Robert Morris would be integrated into, and continue under, the name of Roosevelt University. The integration of the two universities would help them build on their historic missions that honor diversity and access to education, welcoming first-generation students and minorities.
The new University would become academically and financially stronger, lay a stronger foundation for the next 50 years and longer, and be nationally recognized as a catalyst for students from all walks of life to receive transformational learning experiences. Students who attend the expanded Roosevelt University would become socially conscious citizens who thrive in a diverse and changing world.
This application is subject to the approval of the HLC and the governing boards of Roosevelt and Robert Morris. The HLC application is the first step in the process and constitutes a joint request for permission to pursue the proposed transaction. HLC will need to take steps to review the proposal and will likely reach a decision in early 2020.
