John Carroll University educates the whole person – intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and physically. With no more than 25 students in most classrooms and an emphasis on putting lessons to work in the local community, John Carroll is an interactive experience. Each semester, you’ll find that classes are not just about what is covered by the professor, but more so what is uncovered by your own inquiry, experience, and voice.
