Robert Morris University offers 60 undergraduate degree programs and 20 graduate degree programs in five academic schools: the School of Business, the School of Communications and Information Systems, the School of Education and Social Science, the School of Engineering, Mathematics and Science, and the School of Nursing and Health Sciences.

More than 100 clubs and organizations help students to develop leadership skills, network professionally and meet friends.

RMU has 23 NCAA Division I athletic programs, including football, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s hockey, and men's and women's lacrosse.

RMU’s mission is to change our students’ lives so that they can go out and change the lives of others for the better. We do this through professional experiences, service learning, global experiences, undergraduate research, campus leadership, and cultural experiences. These activities are documented on RMU’s unique Student Engagement Transcript.


RMU Alternative Break

In the Community ...

RMU’s Alternative Break Program encourages students to become active citizens and life-long learners by immersing students in diverse communities throughout the country. This photo (right) was taken at the Alternative Spring Break Program in the Appalachian Mountains in southwest Virginia to do home repair for the rural poor.

This year, in March of 2012, students will travel to:

  • Youth Service Opportunity Project in Washington, D.C. to participate in service addressing hunger and homelessness (www.ysop.org)
  • Southern Appalachian Labor School in Kincaid, W.V. to volunteer in service projects addressing rural poverty and sub-standard housing (www.sals.info)
