The school began in Philadelphia as the Institute for Colored Youth and successfully provided free classical education for qualified young people. Today, Cheyney University students represent a variety of races, cultures, and nationalities who receive education instruction beyond the vision of Richard Humphreys.
Christian Brothers University is a Catholic university founded on the heritage of Lasallian education.
