Passion for Justice

At the University of San Francisco, making the world a better place is at the core of every curriculum.

Nursing students provide treatment to low-income patients in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, architecture majors design and rebuild homes in Nicaragua, and counseling students acted as first-responders for Hurricane Harvey and the Northern California Fires.

That commitment to social justice — a calling greater than personal achievement — is what makes the University of San Francisco truly unique. It’s not part of a political agenda or lip service.
