University of San Francisco

San Francisco, CA

According to its mission statement, "[s]ince 1855, the University of San Francisco has offered a daring, dynamic liberal arts education in the Jesuit, Catholic tradition. As a community, we empower our students, faculty, librarians, staff, administrators, alumni, and community partners to be persons for and with others, to care for our common home, and to promote the common good by addressing inequities to create a more humane and just world. USF nurtures a community in which persons of all races and ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, genders, generations, abilities, nationalities, occupations, and socioeconomic backgrounds are honored. We strive to engage with, and contribute to, the cultural, intellectual, economic, and spiritual wealth of the San Francisco Bay Area and the global communities to which we belong. At USF, we value three things in particular: cura personalis, being people for others, and diversity in all its forms." [Source]
