About Our College

What is now known as Clarke University was established in 1843 as St. Mary's Female Academy by Irish emigrant Mother Mary Frances Clarke, the founder of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.[3] It was one of the first such schools for women built west of the Mississippi River.[4]
