Roosevelt University
Chicago, IL 60605

Roosevelt University has a longstanding commitment to serving the needs of minority students pursuing graduate degrees. The University was founded in 1945 with the mission to provide equal educational opportunities to students of all backgrounds. One of the distinctive characteristics of Roosevelt University continues to be the heterogeneity of its students in race and ethnic origin, income, age, and professional development. Based on this founding ideal, Roosevelt provides access to higher education to a diverse student population as well as actively seeks out underserved populations.

Minority students at Roosevelt University have the opportunity to study with a diverse faculty and to benefit from the resources of a major metropolitan city. Serving 2800 students in more than 60 programs of study from each of our five schools, Roosevelt University actively assists minority students in pursuing their career goals.

The University has two full service campuses, one in downtown Chicago, just steps away from Grant Park and Lake Michigan. The other campus is in the heart of the business corridor in suburban Schaumburg. With programs in Arts and Sciences, Education, Business, Performing Arts and more, Roosevelt is sure to match the needs of any minority student. In addition to broad program offerings, Roosevelt offers scholarships, graduate assistantships, and financial assistance programs to eligible students.

Roosevelt encourages interested minority students to visit the University, take a campus tour, and talk with our admission representatives. Arrangements for visitation can be made through the Office of Admission at either of our campus locations.
