Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Building a just, equitable, and welcoming community

The Carroll community is enriched by the opportunities we have to learn from diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds. We are committed to embracing and expanding those opportunities as a core part of the Carroll experience.

That commitment is rooted in our very identity. As a proudly Catholic, diocesan institution of higher education, we are firmly committed to the dignity of every person. And our educational foundation in the liberal arts—where multiple perspectives are key—invites diversity of thought. Finally, diversity in our living and learning community is essential to prepare students to succeed in a multicultural world.

By listening to one another’s experiences, we can come to understand and empathize, which leads to those right relationships that unite us as brothers and sisters.
