From Your Family to Ours

When a member of your family chooses to attend Clarion, you entrust us to look after his or her academic development, social growth and welfare. In other words, your son or daughter is part of the Clarion University family. Everyone here takes this responsibility seriously.

Caring faculty
Faculty members at Clarion are here for two reasons: one, because they've distinguished themselves academically; and two, because they love to teach. Professors at Clarion get attached to students. They attend their games and musical performances. They help locate grants and internships for them. And one more thing: Our faculty members are fully credentialed professors, their classes are never taught by a graduate assistant.

Life After Clarion
Give us four years, and we'll give you a future. Our students are highly successful after graduation, whether in the job market or graduate school.
