Campus Resources

See the links below for a listing of some of the many resources available across campus.

Grants

The Mandel Foundation periodically awards funds to John Carroll University for the purpose of funding campus projects that advance diversity and inclusion on campus.

Funds are made available to all students, faculty, and staff who wish to organize programs to raise awareness about issues of diversity and inclusion, build respect for others, and create and promote a culture of inclusiveness. Programs funded by the Mandel Grants may be implemented in either the Fall or Spring Term.
