“I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.”― Booker T. Washington
About The Program
RUUB is housed at Roosevelt University and has been active since its inception in 1964. Our program currently serves over 100 students from the Little Village and Lawndale communities. Students involved with the program have the opportunity to visit colleges, receive one-on-one tutoring, travel, participate in a summer college residency, and much more. Our students go on to become Posse Scholars and Gates Millennium Scholars and attend schools such as the University of Chicago, SIU-Carbondale, Cornell University, and Mizzou.
