In a world that changes every day, how you think is as important as what you know.

John Carroll helps develop the skills that employers and graduate schools expect. You’ll learn to communicate effectively, understand and interpret data, solve complex problems in diverse settings, and work collaboratively with others. However, a liberal arts education built on hundreds of years of Jesuit educational excellence is so much more. At John Carroll, the focus is on the whole person—mind, body, and spirit.This is reflected in our four University Learning Goals: we strive to develop intellect, character, leadership and service in all that do, both in and outside the classroom.
