Gifts that ensure commitment to a career-focused education and serving diverse communities to distinguish Robert Morris University Illinois as a leader in Experience-based Learning

Annual giving through The RMU Fund is provided by alumni, parents, board members, students, and friends of the University as a flexible, essential source of funds to meet the most immediate needs across RMU. Each dollar given bolsters strategic initiatives, strengthens academic programs, and ensures our students have significant pathways to success.

Thanks to the contributions of generous donors, The RMU Fund supports opportunities that create a vibrant college culture and high-quality academics including:

  • Addition of new academic programs, sports or extracurricular activities. RMU was able to add three new programs in the 17-18 academic year–BS Exercise, Nutrition and Health studies; AAS Medical Laboratory Technology; RN to BSN completion program.
  • Scholarships that enable students and their families to afford RMU’s career-focused education. Last year RMU invested $25 million in student scholarships ensuring that students have access to affordable higher education. About 96% of RMU students receive grant or scholarship aid.
  • Recruiting and retaining dedicated faculty.  RMU was recognized by the Chronicle of Higher Education as an honor roll “Best Colleges to Work for.”
