Our progressive present comes from a storied past. In 1843, Irish woman Mary Frances Clarke journeyed into pioneer territory and formed a congregation of religious women, the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. With a belief in changing hearts and minds, Clarke University was born. Clarke University is a liberal arts and sciences university focused on progressing with the times. Humble beginnings have developed into over 40 undergraduate and 5 graduate programs, including a best-in-class adult education program. We are an institution guided by steadfast principles. We believe one-on-one learning is the ratio for future scholars and laureates. We understand that without proper connections, a quality education is moot. We recognize that easy access to our educators is what sets us apart.
