Founded by the Brothers of Christian Instruction, Walsh University is dedicated to educating its students to become leaders in service to others through a values-based education with an international perspective in the Judeo-Christian tradition.
Walsh University believes in the desirability of a small university that promotes academic excellence, a diverse community and close student-teacher interactions. The University provides its students a higher education that fosters critical thinking, effective communication, spiritual growth, and personal, professional and cultural development.

For nearly 3,000 students from 12 states and 24 countries, the search for the right college has led them to Walsh University in North Canton, OH. There, on a 136-acre safe, suburban campus, they find that learning transcends the classroom. A caring faculty helps students aim higher.
Word about Walsh's unique character and feel -- 50 majors, award-winning athletics and vibrant student life -- is spreading fast. The university is celebrating seven consecutive years of record-setting enrollment. Walsh's eight academic departments offer undergraduate and graduate programs in a wide variety of fields, including business, education, humanities, math, nursing, pre-law, psychology, science, theology and foreign language.
Walsh's newest undergraduate majors are in Bioinformatics and Museum Studies. In 2008, the University launched its first fully-accredited doctorate program, in physical therapy.
A Catholic university welcoming students of all faiths, Walsh continues to pursue its enduring mission: The creation of leaders through service to others.
