Robert Morris University Illinois (Robert Morris or the University) was a private not-for-profit institution offering liberal arts and vocational programs in business and allied health professions. Originally founded as the Moser School in 1913, it was devoted to post-secondary business education, primarily for women who had few options for professional work at that time. In 1975, Moser School merged with Robert Morris Junior College of Carthage, which was chartered in Illinois in 1965. In April 2009, the institution changed its name to Robert Morris University Illinois. Robert Morris served a diverse student body in terms of age, race, gender, ethnicity, and socioeconomic and academic background; and was recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a minority serving institution. Robert Morris University’s main campus was in Chicago with additional locations in Arlington Heights, Bensenville, DuPage, Elgin, Lake County, Orland Park, Schaumburg, Peoria and Springfield.
