Mission Statement

Santa Clara University UNIVERSITY MISSION Santa Clara University is a Catholic and Jesuit institution that makes student learning its central focus- promotes faculty and staff learning in its various forms- and exhibits organizational learning as it deals with the challenges facing it. Student learning takes place at the undergraduate and graduate level in an educa­tional environment that integrates rigorous inquiry and scholarship- creative imagi­nation- reflective engagement with society- and a commitment to fashioning a more humane and just world. As an academic community- we expand the boundaries of knowledge and insight through teaching- research- artistic expression- and other forms of scholarship. It is primarily through discovering- communicating- and applying knowledge that we exercise our institutional responsibility as a voice of reason and conscience in society. We offer challenging academic programs and demonstrate a commitment to the development of: Undergraduate students who seek an education with a strong humanistic orien­tation in a primarily residential setting. Graduate students- many of them working professionals in Silicon Valley- who seek advanced degree programs that prepare them to make significant contribu­tions to their fields. In addition to these core programs- we also provide a variety of continuing education and professional development opportunities for nonmatriculated students.
