Evelyn T. Stone College of Professional Studies

(formerly Evelyn T. Stone University College)

Since its founding in 1966, the Evelyn T. Stone College of Professional Studies has offered innovative, student-centered programs focused on the needs of working students. The College of Professional Studies includes several graduate degrees and post-baccalaureate programs that prepare students for leadership positions in dynamic organizations. The Hospitality and Tourism Management program offers a master’s degree that connects students with Chicago’s world-class hospitality and tourism industry. The Training and Development program offers two master’s degrees (both in the classroom and fully-online) that prepare students for career paths in instructional design and delivery, organization development, online teaching, career development and e- learning. Finally, the Paralegal Studies Program offers a non-credit post-baccalaureate certificate that trains students for exciting careers in the legal profession.

The College of Professional Studies is honored to bear the name of Evelyn T. Stone, an early supporter of Roosevelt University and lifelong champion of education who fell victim to Alzheimer’s disease. Her husband, Jerome H. Stone, founded national and international organizations to help those who suffer from this condition. Mr. Stone remains chairman emeritus of Roosevelt’s Board of Trustees. To recognize Evelyn T. Stone’s values, the college was named in her honor.
