Jesuit Tradition

As a Jesuit university, John Carroll University draws upon the intellectual resources and educational experience of the Society of Jesus, which has operated colleges and universities for more than four centuries. Jesuits on the faculty and in the administration help impart the particular character and value of Jesuit education that make John Carroll University a unique institution in its region. In 2005, the Reverend Robert L. Niehoff, S.J., took office as the University’s twenty-fourth president. A full-time faculty of approximately 200 men and women, religious and lay, share the educational enterprise of service to its students and the community.
