Who We Are

The University of San Francisco embodies the spirit of the city that surrounds it: Sharp minds. Big hearts. Independent spirits. At USF we see you, hear you, help you — and challenge you to change the world for the better.

At USF, reason, religion, science, and spirituality are friends, not enemies. We see the world with a sense of awe and wonder, and with a thirst for answers to the world’s most complex questions.

Our Core Values

At USF, education is much more than job training. It’s about inspiring you to go forth and create a more humane, just, and sustainable world.
