Goal 2:

Enriching the Carroll Experience

Pioneer Driven: Carroll University's New Vision For Distinction
Carroll University will achieve academic excellence through inclusive excellence. By altering structures that impact patterns, an inclusive and equitable environment in which diversity is celebrated will define our community.  Further, we must recognize that learning does not begin and end within the walls of a classroom.
