At its Fifth Annual Partner Appreciation Breakfast at Chicago’s Northern Trust, OneGoal honored Robert Morris University Illinois with the Post Secondary Partner of the Year Award.

OneGoal is a not for profit organization which works closely with public schools in low-income communities to help make college graduation a reality for all students. It provides curricula, technology, training and coaching to assist cohorts of students from their junior year in high school through their first year of college. RMU’s Executive Director of Advancement Carolyn Smith and Vice President for Admissions and Recruitment Andy Berger represented the University at the March 26 event.

Robert Morris has worked with OneGoal to facilitate this transition with tuition assistance, academic advising and the development of close relationships with each student in its cohort. “The partnership Robert Morris has formed with OneGoal has been invaluable for this group of students,” explained Carolyn Smith. “RMU’s New Era Scholarship Fund has provided financial aid, we have a specific group of staff and faculty members who closely monitor each student’s progress and needs, and we recognize each milestone they complete. Our goal and OneGoal’s objectives for these students are one in the same – a college diploma.”
Robert Morris University Illinois is one of 17 post secondary institutions in the Chicagoland involved with OneGoal. “We are honored to be recognized as this year’s Post Secondary Partner of the Year,” added Vice President Berger.
