Diversity helps define our university, and people are noticing. DiverseEducation.com listed the University of San Francisco as number one on its 2013 list of non-historically black colleges and universities that have excellent programs for minority students.

USF students don’t only represent a wide variety of personal experiences and cultural backgrounds. They hail from 48 states and 70 countries. They’re Catholic and Buddhist, from down the coast and across the ocean, young and young at heart, the first in their family to attend college and veterans returning to school. All of this adds up to a unified community and classrooms strengthened by diverse points of view.

 

Top 30
The USF community reflects the cross-cultural richness of San Francisco. U.S. News and World Report ranks us among the nation’s top 30 universities for student ethnic diversity and international student enrollment.
