Founded in 1945 as an independent, non-sectarian, co-educational institution of higher learning, RU’s founders were determined to make higher education available to all students who could qualify academically. RU prepares students to become socially conscious citizens who are leaders in their professions and their communities.   Roosevelt University (RU) was awarded a five-year grant from the Department of Education through its Hispanic-Serving Institutions – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (HSI – STEM) and Articulation program.
