About Carroll University

Carroll University's educational philosophy is sustained by the four pillars of integrated knowledge, gateway experiences, lifelong skills and enduring values. These pillars undergird all that we do at Carroll. They support the Carroll experience and our vision for Carroll students to achieve a lifetime of potential.

Integrated Knowledge is the very foundation of a quality liberal arts program. The Carroll curriculum emphasizes breadth and depth of learning. Our purpose is to encourage students to recognize the interrelationships among ideas. We believe that students with this understanding will continue to learn, grow and succeed long after they leave the campus.

Lifelong Skills
Lifelong Skills help students prepare for life and work in a world of rapid and constant change. We believe that graduates will continue to evolve and contribute to their communities long after they earn their degrees. To that end, our mission is to help students learn to think critically and creatively, adapt to changing technologies, work efficiently and effectively, collaborate with others, and communicate clear, compelling ideas.

Enduring Values
Enduring Values help students to consider always the impact of their actions on the world around them. We believe that effective leaders draw their inspiration from strong personal value systems. Our goal, therefore, is to offer students multiple opportunities to make decisions and then to reflect upon their consequences.

Gateway Experiences
Gateway Experiences occur both upon entering and upon leaving Carroll University. We believe that our educational responsibility extends beyond the classroom into every aspect of our students' lives. That is why we place a special emphasis on preparing incoming students for college life and on helping graduates make successful transitions into their first jobs, or graduate and professional schools.

Campus information

The Student Health Center is located in the lower level of New Hall, room 019, near the Oak Room.

Student Health Center staff enjoys working in partnership with students to meet their health needs on campus.

The board certified nurse practitioners (NPs) are able to:

  • Treat students for minor illnesses and injuries
  • Run tests to diagnose strep throat, mono, urinary tract infections, etc. 
  • Write prescriptions after examining patients, if indicated
  • Perform annual physical exams, sports physicals, and pap smears
  • Administer vaccines, drug screens, blood tests, and TB skin tests
  • Complete Medical Health Statements for your Cross Cultural Experience (CCE)

Urgent care walk-in visits comprise most of the clinic hours and no appointment is necessary. Appointments for well physicals can be scheduled on Wednesday afternoons.

University life is exciting, although some experiences are difficult to handle. Professional, caring counselors at the Walter Young Center are available to help students sort through problems. The service is completely confidential.

Common concerns include:

  • I feel depressed/homesick/confused.
  • My boyfriend/girlfriend and I aren't getting along.
  • I freeze when I take a test.
  • I have trouble being assertive.

The mission of the office of services for students with disabilities at Carroll University is to assist in creating a campus community where students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate in all aspects of the educational environment. Disability Services provides assistance to students who have supplied appropriate documentation evidencing disabilities that range from mild to severe in nature.

Carroll University is committed to making otherwise qualified students with disabilities full participants in its programs, courses, services and activities. We are guided by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments (ADAA) of 2008. Individuals will receive reasonable accommodations according to their needs and the documentation of their disability.
