Surrounded by Pittsburgh institutions of higher learning, Carlow University stands out by providing exceptional education that nurtures the individual for a lifetime of learning.

Rooted in its Catholic identity and embodying the heritage and values of the Sisters of Mercy, Carlow offers transformational opportunities for a diverse community of learners within a compassionate community.  As a private, liberal arts university, it empowers students to excel by offering small classes, generous financial aid, and innovative on-site and online programs.  Caring about others is central to Carlow culture and its students, faculty, and staff are committed to service and bettering the lives of everyone they touch.
