A message from the President

President John Swallow We live and work in a richly diverse world. At Carthage, we strive to enhance the diversity and equity of our community and, together, to create an ever more enlightened and inclusive environment that will positively impact the world.

We do this not only because we know the great value of a diverse and equitable educational environment — for these benefits have been well-documented — but also because it is who we are and it is the right thing to do. And the message we hope to convey to all who come to explore and join Carthage College is that you belong here. You belong here because of who you are, where you come from, and what gifts you possess. Please join us.

— Carthage College President John Swallow
