Coordinates: 40°31′14″N 80°12′38″W / 40.520579, -80.210688 Robert Morris University (RMU) is a private, coeducational university. Founded in 1921, the school was named for Robert Morris, who signed the Declaration of Independence and helped finance the ensuing war with the British. RMU offers more than 30 undergraduate, 14 graduate, and four doctoral degree programs as well as private clubs and residence halls. The core campus consists of a 230-acre (931,000 m²) tract in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh (near the international airport), and the school maintains a satellite campus in downtown Pittsburgh, on Forbes Avenue near the Allegheny County Courthouse. The university consists of six academic schools. The School of Business and the School of Adult and Continuing Education offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The School of Education and Social Sciences, the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, the School of Communications and Information Systems, and the School of Engineering, Mathematics, and Science offer undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degree programs. RMU is also a provider institution for the Online Consortium of Independent Colleges and Universities (OCICU). Prior to 2002, the University was known as Robert Morris College (and previous to that, Robert Morris Junior College). However, it is not affiliated with Robert Morris College in Chicago, Illinois. Robert Morris University is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Current enrollment is approximately 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students. On May 20, 2005, University officials announced that Gregory G. Dell'Omo, an administrator at St. Joseph's University, had been chosen to replace longtime president Edward Nicholson. Dell'Omo was installed as president on August 1, 2005. Robert Morris' sports teams are nicknamed the Colonials and the school colors are blue and white. The Colonials compete in NCAA Division I (FCS, formerly Division I-AA, in football).
