11:1 Student-to-Faculty Ratio

Our student-to-faculty ratio is small, so our students receive the attention and learning experiences they deserve. Students are attracted to our institution for many reasons. But it’s our people, our faculty and staff, who by far are the number one reason students attend Rockford University.

Our accomplished and engaged faculty and staff show a commitment to the individual through their expertise and caring nature. In classrooms across campus, faculty members guide students step-by-step as they gain knowledge, values, and skills to inform their personal and professional lives. Students learn firsthand from experts in their respective disciplines—most holding the highest degrees in their fields—while staff members are there to help students with questions when they aren’t in the classroom.

Speaking of the classroom, the learning environment at Rockford University is interdisciplinary and engaging, tying academics with practical and professional applications. Our students learn theory and critical thinking skills in the classroom and then apply those lessons in real-world settings.
