Herman Crown Center[edit]

The Herman Crown Center also houses students from other schools that are interning around Chicagto. Can you guys insert that in the article?

Good point. I interned in Chicago and stayed at the Herman Crown Center. Almost everyone there during the summer was interning and from other schools.


History[edit]

This school has an amazing history. There really needs to be a section about it.--Twintone 21:59, 17 October 2006 (UTC)

Pic needed[edit]

...when someone takes a pic of the Loop campus, can they insert it into the appropriate section in Harold Washington as well? Thanks! —Rob (talk) 04:00, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Censorship Controversy[edit]

I just heard an account of former Roosevelt professor Douglas Giles' experiences in a censorship case vs. the university, specifically his department head Susan Weininger. It centred around Weiningers insistence that Giles should not allow students to have freedom to ask questions in his history of world religions class, and that he should avoid all mention of Zionism, Palestinians, the Islamic idea of the holiness of Jerusalem/Al-Quds, because "it opened up Judaism to criticism" For more details here's the CBC broadcast that I heard (Part 2): [1] - it's also available on itunes. This seems like a fairly significant case that has recieved some international attention - I think a short mention of it would be relavent - anyone else agree? --Internal Globe 16:50, 7 September 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Internal Globe (talkcontribs)

Requested rating from WP:Universities[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians, I was passing through and noticed that this article was not labeled as part of the WikiProject:Universities so I added the tag and am requesting a rating from them. TRUsmith (talk) 09:35, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

Social Justice mission[edit]

In an earlier edit, a statement showcasing Roosevelt's emphasis on social justice in its curriculum was removed and labeled as "irrelevant." I would like to point out that the editor in question is an IP user with only seven contributions (including this one) dating back to September 27, 2015. Of these seven, four took place on a single day in February 2016. I believe standard protocol with such anonymous "ghost users" should be to simply revert the edit; however, upon consideration of the "irrelevant" label I think this user may have actually been onto something.

In my own opinion, the statement concerning Roosevelt's social justice curriculum is better placed in the Academics section which is itself a bit lacking in details aside from a list of the university's colleges. I therefore added back the main aspects of the removed statement and fleshed it out a bit further with a few examples of how social justice is integrated into the school's coursework.

I took a crack at adding a reference from the U.S. News & World Report overview of the university. What do you think? Cloud atlas (talk) 23:07, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
It's been awhile since my last login. Great idea to add this reference. Thanks!! TRUsmith (talk) 19:11, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
