JOHN CARROLL UNIVERSITY
A commitment to service is a distinctive characteristic of Jesuit-educated individuals. We call it becoming “men and women for and with others.” Indeed, nearly 10% or 52 current members of the 114th Congress graduated from Jesuit institutions of higher education. At John Carroll University in University Heights, Ohio, our mission is to inspire individuals to excel in learning, leadership, and service in the region and in the world. John Carroll is recognized nationally for an exceptional four-year graduation rate, teaching excellence, and a commitment to living a faith that does justice as central to its mission. www.jcu.edu
