The University of San Francisco is one of 28 Jesuit Catholic colleges and universities in the United States, and aims to be a reflection of the city it inhabits — progressive, entrepreneurial, diverse, and passionate.

USF provides students from all backgrounds an education that is intensely personal and intellectually demanding.

USF students see the world with a sense of awe and wonder, and with a curiosity for answers to the world’s most complex questions. Students of all faith backgrounds — or with no religious affiliations — contribute to the diversity of perspectives and experiences that are essential to our truly global education (University of San Francisco – Who We AreSan Francisco Advantage).
