About Rockford University

Leading groundbreaking research in the field of cardiology. Coaching a Division I program to the NCAA Tournament. Testing the first artificial heart valve in humans. Designing product packaging for a national cookie company. Traveling with the national tour of Cats. Winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Rockford University graduates aren’t like everyone else. In fact, our alumni are pretty amazing.

Since 1847, Rockford graduates have made their mark all around the world. Far more than preparing students to do something, we empower our graduates to accomplish anything. That empowerment starts right on our campus. With rich academic opportunities, practical experiences, and global perspectives, Rockford University students succeed in an inviting community where you can do anything, be anything, and experience anything.
