University Alumni Association

John Carroll University has more than 40,000 alumni, each of whom has a lifetime connection to the institution. As a result, the odds of a future employer, colleague, neighbor, or service provider being found among our alumni are fairly high.

The John Carroll Alumni Association, led by a volunteer advisory board of alumni, works to establish a lifelong, meaningful relationship between the University and its current and future alumni. The association furthers the spiritual, intellectual, and social welfare of its members and the John Carroll community. It also promotes both student and alumni interests through active participation in student recruitment, community service, athletic programs, career networking, scholarships, and the Alumni Chapter program.

The Alumni Medal, the highest honor annually awarded by the Alumni Association, is presented to alumni who have distinguished themselves in their personal lives and careers, thereby reflecting credit upon John Carroll’s educational efforts, moral principles, and philosophical tenets. Each year, the Alumni Awards program honors those who bring distinction to John Carroll University through their superior talents and selfless service.
