Clarke University

A nonprofit organization

$190 raised by 4 donors

Clarke University is a learning community that lives by four core values: Education, Charity, Justice, and Freedom. These values emanate from our founder Mary Frances Clarke, the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and those who follow their example to provide learning experiences that are relevant and forward-looking.

As a community seeking wisdom, we help all to appreciate learning opportunities that enable persons to reach their full potential.

As a community seeking to welcome all, we contribute to the well-being of others and the common good.

As a community standing with others, we strive to create a society that recognizes the dignity, equality and rights of all people and to respond faithfully to one another.

As a community seeking to live authentic lives, we invite all to be open to God's love and to be true to their best selves.

Clarke offers more than 50 undergraduate majors and minors, 10 pre-professional programs, seven graduate degree programs, and the CareerPLUS professional development micro course program.


When you choose to support Clarke, you are doing more than making a gift. You are making a meaningful investment in the lives of our students, which isn't something you can put a price on. Many individuals show their support for Clarke University by making a financial contribution or by providing internships and job opportunities for current students and recent graduates.

“I love the community-style atmosphere and how welcoming everyone is. Without scholarships and awards, I do not think I would be able to attend Clarke; they also take away some stress I feel about money. I have loved every minute of my time at Clarke and wouldn't change it for the world!” 

"Without scholarships, I would never have been able to complete four years at Clarke. I hope that my contribution helps someone else fulfill his/her dream."

“I’m the first in my family to go to college, so there were a lot of people I reached out to. The Clarke Admissions and Financial Aid staff really showed me the best options for my family and me, so we knew what we were going to have planned in the future. My advisor, coaches, and other staff helped too. A lot of people at Clarke are like that. They are always stopping in to check on you.”
