Educating the Whole Person
Educating the Whole Person
It was Bishop Carroll’s dream to create a Catholic college whose central purpose was to provide a thorough liberal education that would equip students with knowledge and virtue for their pursuit of leadership in any vocation. For over 100 years, Carroll College has been fulfilling that dream.
As we look forward to the next 100 years, we are excited about what we can accomplish together to expand upon Bishop Carroll’s vision and honor the tradition of excellence that has deﬁned Carroll College.
We recognize the Carroll experience is about providing a healthy, compassionate, inclusive and academically rigorous environment for our students. To continue to fulfill this promise, we want to grow and evolve. With your involvement we are energized by what lies ahead.
We am also delighted to share with you that a groundswell in 2015 year-end giving resulted in over $4.2 million in fourth-quarter gifts to the college. Find out more about your generosity.
Our hope is that together we can build upon the extraordinary efforts of our predecessors’ unwavering ambition and vision and put our stamp on the Carroll of the future. Join us in our “i’m in” initiative and be part of cultivating a new generation of Carroll students – in mind, body and spirit.
"There has never been a more exciting time to be involved with Carroll College, and there have never been greater opportunities for our supporters to make a difference at the college. By supporting MIND BODY SPIRIT,
the Campaign for Carroll College, you can share your own vision for the institution and ensure that the values that have made Carroll College great continue to guide us for generations to come.”

Students ﬂourish at Carroll College because of the exceptional educational opportunities provided to them. We will continue to reinforce the academic rigor that are the hallmarks of a Carroll education by creating a twenty-ﬁrst century learning environment, focusing on the following areas.
Since completing the first phase of the Corette Library project, it has been transformed into a facility that focuses on collaborative learning and research. With new classrooms and small group study rooms, the Corette Library has become the place on campus where students gather to study quietly on their own or in groups, and research issues and ideas utilizing state-of-the-art tools. The next phase of the library project will include:
The Carroll Anthrozoology program is attracting students from all over the country and is the only undergraduate program of its kind in the U.S. Designed for students who have a passion for and want to work directly with animals, the innovative curriculum combines the liberal arts, service learning and hands-on courses, resulting in a rigorous and scholarly education. To meet the needs of this growing program, this campaign will provide:
"Your gift to Carroll College will be a significant step in advancing Carroll’s mission to provide for the expansion of the intellectual, imaginative, and social awareness of its students... and providing for its students the means for their full realization of a dual goal of vocation and enlightenment. We invite you to join us in educating and nurturing the whole person – in MIND, BODY and SPIRIT."

with recreational facilities that enrich the physical, emotional and social well-being of students. This campaign will provide a new activity center with recreational and fitness space for students and faculty, multi-purpose spaces and classrooms for students, and an outdoor activity center with storage space for gear and a climbing room for outdoor enthusiasts.
At Carroll there is an understanding that strong minds are the product of strong bodies and therefore it is the college’s desire to support the physical and social well-being of its students. To assist in the quest for ideal mental and physical health, the college aspires to create state-of-the-art campus facilities that exercise the body as well as the mind, providing a venue to further develop the whole person through recreational fellowship, physical contest and a healthy lifestyle. Providing on-campus facilities complements these opportunities and builds lifelong habits to enrich their lives.
In honor of Archbishop Raymond Hunthausen – Carroll student, professor, coach and president who taught the importance of tending mind, body and spirit – the campaign will provide:
The new Hunthausen Activity Center is coming in Spring 2017! Follow along in the contruction process through our construction cam.
“I know that God lives on Carroll’s campus but maybe it’s more tangible here. Without knowing it, without saying it, without speaking about it, students, faculty and staff are just more aware of that reality. And that’s a great gift. Read more »

through spaces for worship and service. This campaign will provide a welcoming and reverent place for the college community to worship together and will include appropriate facilities to support growing campus ministry programs and service activities, and areas that promote personal reflection, prayer and growth in the Holy Spirit.
Carroll College is privileged to provide for the spiritual needs of the college community. With this honor comes the desire to create sacred and welcoming spaces for our growing liturgical programs to provide students of all faiths the opportunity to explore and nurture their spirituality.
By transforming the north wing of St. Charles Hall ("Old North") into a campus chapel with programmatic spaces for campus ministry, Carroll places its spiritual life at the historic center of the campus.
The chapel project will include:
“The interior faith of the students who gather for Mass is profoundly beautiful, joyful and powerful. It is time for Carroll to have an exterior space that is worthy of and can augment their energetic witness of faith.” Read more »
