Message from the President

Douglas N. Hastad, Ph.D.

Welcome to Carroll University. As Wisconsin's first institution of higher education, Carroll combines the best of a rich heritage with state-of-the-art technology and a vibrant academic experience.

Situated on 50 acres in one of Wisconsin's fastest growing communities, Carroll is only minutes away from the energy of Milwaukee, and the beauty and serenity of Wisconsin's coveted Kettle Moraine wilderness area. Our beautiful campus includes historic buildings with modern amenities.

As thousands of our alumni have discovered, Carroll exemplifies the very best traditions of a small college with a wide-ranging curriculum grounded in the liberal arts. Creative thought and expression abound. Carroll is a place that nurtures critical thinking.

Today, Carroll continues to build on its historic foundation that supported the college at its beginning 170 years ago. We remain committed to a values-centered education. Carroll is a place of deep roots and purpose.

Without a doubt, the best part of Carroll is its people. Each member of the campus community is mindful of the institution and those it serves. Indeed, Carroll is a place of highly regarded academic programs, talented and dedicated faculty, and staff who care deeply about students.

I will retire my position as President at the end of June 2017, however remain committed to maintaining the forward momentum of campus-wide initiatives throughout the school year. One thing is certain, the future of Carroll is bright and the entire campus community will continue to make strides for years to come.

In short, Carroll University is a special place! I hope you will visit us soon.
