Our Difference

You are what makes us different. You breathe life into our curriculum, you bring humanity to our teaching, and you give us the motivation to continue innovating for good. USF faculty hone your skills and develop your compassion as you go forth to create a more just and humane world.

Publish your research alongside our faculty, enter competitions and earn prizes for your writing, earn highly competitive fellowships, and apply to top graduate schools.

Engage in the community and change the world for the better. You won’t be alone: our students have built a library for street children in Zambia, worked on bridging the digital divide in Peru, and fought against modern-day slavery right here in the U.S.

Waiting to teach you and be your cheerleaders are teacher-scholars who have won national awards, earned major new grants and prestigious Fulbright scholarships, and created and premiered in major art venues and film festivals around the globe.
