Carlow University believes in the education and growth of the person both inside and outside the classroom. We encourage students to develop skills in judgment, leadership, analysis, decision-making, and communication. Our philosophy embraces the mission of the University as we seek to involve students in a holistic, self-directed, lifelong journey of discovery and empowerment in which emotional, spiritual, vocational, intellectual, environmental, physical, and social aspects of their lives are challenged toward growth and fulfillment.
The Student Life Division uses a variety of education and student developmental models to develop our programs. It integrates commuter and resident student activities, provides meaningful opportunities for learning professional leadership skills, and puts student activity programming into the hands of students.
