Santa Clara Jesuits teach in the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Law, and the Leavey School of Business and Administration. Others serve in the University's administration, Campus Ministry, Eastside Project, Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, and student residence halls. The Jesuit commitment to intellectual, moral, and spiritual values continues to be an important influence in shaping the kind of university Santa Clara is and aspires to be.
However, the current Jesuit contribution is not only academic and administrative. The Jesuit faculty and staff receive salaries commensurate with their professional training and experience. The salaries of these individual Jesuits are paid to the Jesuit community, which donates a significant part of its income each year to the University for student financial aid. In addition, Jesuits play a prominent role in the University's fund-raising efforts. In all of this, Jesuits work together with lay colleagues to sustain the Jesuit educational tradition.
