About the Croft Institute for International Studies

2022 Graduate Dinner

Croft Students meeting with Mark Daly, the 29th Leas-Chathaoirleach of Seanad √Čireann. 

The Croft Institute is the center of academic excellence for students who want to transcend the horizons of their local community, their region, and the nation as a whole.

Established in 1997 by a generous gift and funded annually by the Joseph C. Bancroft Educational & Charitable Fund, Croft offers the benefits of a small private institution - selective admission, rigorous academic program, small classes, and first-rate facilities - with all of the advantages of a large public university-affordable tuition, a wide range of opportunities, and major institutional resources. By combining the best features of small and large academic institutions, Croft provides the best of both worlds for a truly unique college experience.
