About the Croft Institute for International Studies

2019 Graduate Dinner

The Croft Institute hosts Professor Ezra Feivel Vogel of Harvard University.

Daoud Hari, author of The Translator and a Darfur survivor, shares his story with Croft students.

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.
