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 education students lead elementary school classrooms in Belize.

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.

At USF, my international studies professors inspired me to gain a better understanding of the world. I was taught not to fixate on one solution to a problem, but to consider all the possibilities — not just those that appeared obvious to me.”
