USF Leadership wearing regalia for graduation ceremonies

President & Leadership

USF’s leadership team, led by Rev. Paul J. Fitzgerald, S.J., is deeply committed to giving students and faculty the best tools available to realize USF’s mission to change the world.

As articulated in the 2028 plan, USF has identified five areas of focus—Jesuit Catholic tradition, academic excellence, our San Francisco location, diversity, and a global perspective. These five strengths, and their integration into the fabric of campus life, set USF apart.
