About this organization







As one of 28 Jesuit Catholic universities in the USA, John Carroll University's mission is to inspire individuals to excel in learning, leadership, and service.


From its modest origin in 1886 as Saint Ignatius College on Cleveland's near west side, John Carroll today is widely recognized as a transformative university that excels in undergraduate and postgraduate education, attracting students from 34 states and 29 countries. The university strives to develop each student as a whole person - mind, body, and soul. At the same time, students are challenged to make a difference in the world through leadership and service. As a Jesuit Catholic university, John Carroll offers a rigorous education based on a well-developed liberal arts core curriculum, including a variety of academic programs in the arts and sciences, and education. U.S. News and world report annually ranks John Carroll among the top 10 universities in the midwest that grant master's degrees, and the university's John M. and Mary Jo Boler College of Business holds dual AACSB accreditation - an international distinction awarded by the association to advance collegiate schools of business placing it in the top five percent of business schools worldwide. A recent Bloomberg Businessweek survey of employers ranked the Boler School of Business number on in the nation in preparing students for careers. John Carroll consistently ranks as one of the top schools in the midwest for retention rates and graduation rates, which significantly exceeds U.S. And Ohio averages. The university's 13:1 student/faculty ratio ensures individual attention and an interactive experience. 85% of all classes have fewer than 30 students with no class exceeding 50 students. The university-educated 3,076 undergraduate students and 479 graduate students; offered 44 bachelor degree majors and 21 graduate school programs; and conferred 735 bachelor and 204 masters degrees in the 2018-2019 academic year. John Carroll is recognized for excellent retention and graduation rates. 83% of JCU freshmen return as sophomores, and 70% of JCU undergrads receive their bachelor's degrees in four years, compared with 53% of other four-year private schools nationwide, and 33% of four-year public schools. John Carroll University has been named to the president's higher education community service honor roll multiple times. Service to others is a defining element of the university, where more than two-thirds of the student body participate in service activities. Students have many opportunities to engage with the local community from the time they are freshmen. Our students learn from distinguished faculty who are experts in their respective fields. 95% of our 179 full-time teaching faculty members hold doctoral degrees or the terminal degree in their field; nine are Fulbright fellows. The majority of our faculty have published books, articles, or received research grants in the past two years. The university's varsity sports teams compete at the NCAA Division III intercollegiate level, and have won over 100 league titles and have placed among the top 10 Division III schools in the nation on several occasions. More than 100 varsity athletes have been named Division III all-Americans with six national champions, three national players of the year and one academic all-American of the year. Nearly 500 undergraduates participate in 23 varsity men's and women's sports. Students also have access to intramural sports, club sports, and other fitness and recreational activities. John Carroll University welcomes students and faculty from different religious backgrounds and value systems in the belief that the educational environment which the university provides is one which these students and faculty may find congenial, rewarding, and enriched by their presence. Within this environment there is concern for the human and spiritual developmental needs of the students and a deep respect for the freedom and dignity of the human person. A faculty not only professionally qualified but also student-oriented, considers excellence in interpersonal relationships as well as academic achievement among its primary goals.
