Who We Are

The University of San Francisco — a premier Jesuit university — is a reflection of the inclusive, inspirational, innovative city that surrounds it. We provide students from all backgrounds an education that is intensely personal and intellectually demanding.

For us, reason, religion, science, and spirituality are complementary. Our students see the world with a sense of awe and wonder, and with a curiosity for answers to the world’s most complex questions.

Our Core Values

At USF, it’s about more than giving graduates a personal advantage. It’s about inspiring them to go forth and set the world on fire, to create a more humane, just, and sustainable world.
