The Campion Shield recognizes heroism, bravery, or sacrifice on the part of a member of the John Carroll community. Sponsored and funded by the Saint Edmund Campion Society of John Carroll University, the Campion Shield recognizes an individual’s physical or moral action(s) in the face of adversity on behalf of others and emulates the life of Saint Edmund Campion of the Society of Jesus. The Campion Shield also affirms the Jesuit ideal of being men and women for others, a principle reinforced in the mission of John Carroll University.
