Opening the door.

The story of Roosevelt University is one of courage.

It all started in 1945. Edward J. Sparling, then president of the YMCA College in Chicago, refused to provide his board with requested demographic information regarding his student body, fearing they would instate a quota limiting the number of blacks, Jews, immigrants, and women enrolled. Sparling was an idealist and visionary, outspoken in challenging endemic inequality in an era that accepted it as second nature. After his refusal to meet the board’s request, Sparling resigned under protest. However, his moral courage inspired a brave exodus among the school’s principled faculty and staff. Nearly half left with him, vowing to create an independent, nonsectarian, coeducational institution of higher learning.

The new school was chartered as Thomas Jefferson College in 1945. Just two weeks later, Franklin Roosevelt, beloved president and champion of human rights, died in office. In honor of his contributions to equality and democracy, the school was renamed Roosevelt College. Touched by the tribute, first lady Eleanor Roosevelt – also a leading activist for peace and social justice – served as a beacon of encouragement and support for the institution and its vision, dedicating it "to the enlightenment of the human spirit.
