Multicultural Recruitment

The University of San Francisco was named the number one college for minority students by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education. We also earned a #8 ranking on U.S. News & World Report’s list of top universities for undergraduate student ethnic diversity. But numbers tell only a fraction of the story.

USF’s Multicultural Recruitment Office is on a mission to deliver a top-tier education to underrepresented students. We believe that diversity helps define USF. Our students don’t simply represent an array of experiences and backgrounds, they are actively engaged in the world – and in changing it.

Our team visits high schools and participates in college fairs that serve multicultural and first-generation students around the U.S. We also coordinate outreach and enrollment events for new students, including From Dusk ‘til Don, a two-day overnight program for newly admitted African American, Latino/Hispanic and Native American freshmen.
