Frequently Asked Questions:
Fraternity and Sorority Life
John Carroll University’s fraternities and sororities strive to support the University mission by cultivating the development of scholarship, leadership, service, character and community. By adhering to the Jesuit Catholic mission and heritage, fraternities and sororities will foster respect and integrity with the JCU community, Greater Cleveland, and the world.
Grounded in the Catholic and Ignatian tradition, Campus Ministry serves persons of all faiths. The office encourages students, faculty, and staff of JCU to integrate personal faith into the academic and social environment of the University. We value the University’s commitment to academic pursuits, and welcome the opportunities we have to bring a Catholic and Ignatian faith perspective to bear on issues and trends that may surface in various disciplines and in a variety of social milieus.
Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion
CSDI educates the entire campus community on issues of diversity, inclusion, and multiculturalism. At the same time, we provide services and support for students from historically underrepresented populations.
Center for Service and Social Action
Centered in the rich tradition of Catholic Social Teaching in dialogue with the contemporary Jesuit commitment to a faith that does justice, the CSSA educates for justice by offering opportunities for learning through service and advocacy. CSSA connects the JCU campus with the community through sustained partnerships that enable us to realize the Jesuit goal of developing well-educated men and women who understand what it means to stand in solidarity with those living in poverty and on the margins; to engage in ongoing reflection; and to build a more just and humane society.
