Cheyney University of Pennsylvania


Proudly standing as the nation’s oldest historically black colleges and universities, Cheyney University has been a stalwart and highly respected higher education institution since its founding in 1837. For 182 years, our alumni have emerged as leaders and left their mark on Philadelphia's social, economic, and political history, the surrounding region, the nation, and the world.

Building on this legacy, the vision for Cheyney University is to become the premier model for academic excellence, character development, and social responsibility among not only historically black colleges and universities but in all of American higher education.
