Pioneers Persevere

Carroll University’s story is one of perseverance. It’s a trait that’s in high demand and very much on display right now. The COVID-19 pandemic has upturned our lives and changed our priorities. But facing these unforeseen challenges and moving forward with grace, ingenuity and determination has also brought out our best. Here in Wisconsin and across the globe, Pioneers are stepping up and finding new ways to connect, serve and inspire.

We're Here for You

In these times of uncertainty, remember the memories we've built. And prepare for the memories we'll make when we're together again.

2020: Carroll University's Year in Review


The year 2020 was different in many ways for Carroll University—and the world. The pandemic tested us, but as Pioneers, we forged ahead. We maintained our sense of community, continued to make news, and celebrated great accomplishments. Highlights include dedicating our renovated Education Hall, home to the new School of Education and Human Services; recognizing academic excellence as Carroll zoomed up the U.S. News & World Report ranking list; and, opening up our new esports center for student competition.
