Dean's Circle

The Dean's Circle is a group of alumni and friends committed to furthering the goals of the University of San Francisco School of Law.

The Dean's Circle seeks to increase the percentage of alumni and friends giving to the law school thereby broadening our base of support, and creating a new culture of giving at the law school that can sustain our aspirations and hopes for what the law school can become.

To be a member of the Dean's Circle, alumni and friends are asked to commit $10,000 per year for five years. Contributions to the Dean's Circle, when so designated by the donor, will be used to set up a matching fund which will be used to match new gifts to the Law Assembly (from $25-$1,000) and Class Gifts ($20.08 and above) made by students. Contributions will be used to increase support to the many programs funded by the Law Assembly, including law clinics, summer internships, scholarships and loan repayment assistance, diversity initiatives, public interest internships, symposia, visiting faculty, and moot court competitions.

Participation in the Dean's Circle does not limit your ability to designate your contribution for a particular use such as a scholarship fund or an endowed faculty chair. However, the Dean's Circle contributions can only be used as matching funds gifts if they remain ‘undesignated' allowing the law school to use the money for the purposes it deems most essential. Designated or undesignated, your gift ensures we can send a clear message that there is a strong group of alumni and friends making a significant commitment to the future growth of the USF School of Law.

Members of the Dean's Circle are varied in their interests, work and practices. Yet they all have one thing in common: a passion for the law school and its efforts to "Educate Minds and Hearts to Change the World." Dean's Circle members gather on occasion to share ideas about the law school, including substantive gatherings to focus on particular topics and honor those who are making significant contributions to the pursuit of justice.
