                              S. Res. 137

       Whereas on April 17, 2015, Roosevelt University, located in 
     Chicago, Illinois, will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the 
     founding of the University on April 17, 1945;
       Whereas Roosevelt University has graduated more than 95,000 
     students who have become leaders in their professions and 
     careers, including the first African-American mayor of 
     Chicago, Harold Washington;
       Whereas Roosevelt University was founded at a time when 
     most institutions of higher education in the United States 
     did not enroll large numbers of minority or immigrant 
     students;
       Whereas Roosevelt University became 1 of the first colleges 
     in the United States to admit all qualified students, 
     regardless of race, religion, or national origin;
       Whereas throughout its history, Roosevelt University has 
     always remained true to the values of inclusiveness, 
     opportunity, and social justice; and
       Whereas today, Roosevelt remains 1 of the most diverse 
     universities in the Midwest: Now, therefore, be it
       Resolved, That the Senate--
       (1) congratulates the administration, staff, students, and 
     alumni of Roosevelt University on the occasion of the 70th 
     anniversary of the University; and
       (2) wishes the entire Roosevelt community many years of 
     continued success in the future.
