Distinctions, Honors and Rankings

San Francisco’s First University. That is our core distinction.

Enrollment by EthnicityThe University of San Francisco was founded by a Italian, Jesuit immigrant in 1855 just a few years after the start of the Gold Rush and we have grown with the city as it developed from an isolated fishing village into an internationally significant urban center. San Francisco’s combined qualities of pioneering spirit, innovation, and inclusive diversity —guided by Jesuit educational rigor —are what distinguish the University of San Francisco to this day.

When Fr. Anthony Maraschi, SJ, built our first building on sand dunes South of Market St. in 1855 he said: “Here, in time, will be the heart of a great city.” He was right, of course, and that commitment to being in and of San Francisco is what the University of San Francisco is all about.
