Clarke University is a Catholic, co-educational, liberal arts and sciences institution. Founded in 1843 by Mary Frances Clarke, foundress of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM), it is the only BVM university in the United States.

We are a four year private non-profit institution.

Our 55-acre campus sits on a bluff in a quiet residential area overlooking the city of Dubuque, Iowa (population 58,000) and the Mississippi River.
