75 years ago, Roosevelt University was born when a visionary leader and 62 faculty members had the guts to go against the norms of exclusion in favor of inclusion. They went against the discriminatory practices of higher education in 1945. When asked to limit access because of race, religion and gender, they simply said, -We don-t count that way.-Our history is grounded in courage, acceptance and a commitment to social justice.Principles. Courage. Grit. A willingness to be the first. Whatever your background, wherever you-re from, we-ll help you unleash your potential.
