Carroll University

Carroll University, a highly regarded, medium-sized private university, was the first institution of higher learning in Wisconsin, opening in 1846, two years before Wisconsin became a state. When the Territorial Legislature granted a charter to Carroll College, the legislators charged the college with planting the roots of democracy in the upper Midwest.

Soon after its founding, Carroll affiliated with the Presbyterian Church and adopted the motto "Christo et Litteris," which means "for Christ and Learning." The university's covenant relationship with The Synod of Lakes and Prairies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) affirms a mutual commitment to encourage intellectual curiosity, demonstrate excellence in education, and seek relevance in the quest of knowledge and its application in a complex global society. Carroll values the diverse cultural, multi-national, religious, and ethnic make-up of the entire university community.

The university's educational philosophy is sustained by four pillars: integrated knowledge, gateway experiences, lifelong skills, and enduring values. These pillars support the "Carroll Experience" and the vision for students to achieve a lifetime of potential.

After a nationwide search, Carroll University named Sara Ray Stoelinga, Ph.D. as its 15th president. Dr. Stoelinga presently serves as the Sara Liston Spurlark Director of the University of Chicago Urban Education Institute. She succeeds President Douglas Hastad who will retire after more than a decade of outstanding service to the university.

Under President Hastad's leadership, the university has grown significantly in programs and enrollment. With an enrollment of more than 3,500 students, Carroll is comprised of the College of Health Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Business, Accounting, and Economics (to become the School of Business).

The university awards 12 degrees.

Undergraduate degrees: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Music Education, Bachelor of Science in Music Therapy; Graduate degrees: Master of Business Administration, Master of Education, Master of Science in Exercise Physiology, Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies, Master of Software Engineering, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and Master of Occupational Therapy

Over the past decade, freshman-to-sophomore retention rates have climbed from 72 percent to 82 percent. The graduating class of 2016 consisted of 538 undergraduate students and 152 graduate students.

Since 2006, the vibrant teaching and learning environment at Carroll has been enriched by a broad range of initiatives and campus improvements, including:

* A new Pioneer Core general education curriculum distinguished by its integrated theme of culture across all four years, including a cross-cultural immersion experience prior to graduation

* A new Learning Commons that accommodates nearly 100,000 student visits a year through its programs of supplemental instruction, subject tutoring, Career Services, Math Center, and Writing Center

* A Pioneer Scholars Program that pairs a faculty member with a student for collaborative summer research

* Significant and consistent investment in campus facilities, including the renovation of many historic properties for use as academic buildings, such as the new Business Hall

* Prairie Springs Environmental Educational Center and the Paul Fleckenstein Research Laboratory located adjacent to the university's 65-acre Genesee Field Station

* Three new residence halls that transformed an avenue bordering the campus into an academic village

* A new, art-infused Center for Graduate Studies, conveniently located three miles from campus and near major freeways

* A new, state-of-the art Science Center (all laboratories) that opened for classes in fall 2016

* Demolition of an existing building with construction of a new academic facility to house nursing and exercise science scheduled for completion in 2018

Beyond the classroom, Carroll seeks to engage students in service programs, clubs and organizations, and athletic programs. Robust student leadership opportunities are offered.

Carroll University is located in Waukesha County, which annually ranks as one of the most highly educated, healthiest, fastest growing, and wealthiest counties in the state of Wisconsin. The campus is nestled in a residential neighborhood, with a 12-minute walk to historic downtown Waukesha.

This charming riverfront city is filled with art galleries, boutique shops, and many unique restaurants and coffee shops. In 2012 the city was ranked in the top 100 for "Best Communities in the United States for Young People" by America's Promise Alliance and "100 Best Places to Live" by Money Magazine.

Historic Waukesha is a short distance from Wisconsin's largest city, Milwaukee, and Lake Michigan shoreline.
