Mission & Values
Seeking Truth, Building Strength, Inspiring Service — Together
That’s the Carthage mission. It’s not a stodgy old saying recited at alumni banquets and presidential dinners. It’s a challenge. One that we put forth anew every single day. To our students. To our faculty and staff.
To make this world a better place for all of us.
