Who We Are

The University of San Francisco — a premier Jesuit university — is a reflection of the inclusive, inspirational, innovative city that surrounds it. We provide students from all backgrounds an education that is intensely personal and intellectually demanding.

For us, reason, religion, science, and spirituality are complementary. Our students see the world with a sense of awe and wonder, and with a curiosity for answers to the world’s most complex questions.

Our Values

At USF, excellence is the standard for teaching, scholarship, creative expression, and service. Individuals from all faiths or with no religious affiliations contribute to the diversity of perspectives and experiences that are essential to our truly global education.
