Faculty as Teaching Scholars. We are committed to being a community of scholars. Teaching scholars lead the way with exemplary teaching, research, original scholarship, artistic work, and performance. Faculty, staff, and alumni serve as mentors, role models, and ethical leaders of competence and compassion for students. Students have opportunities to produce original scholarship while learning collaboratively.
Jesuit Commitment to Faith and Justice. We embrace, in all its complexity, the concept of social justice, articulated within the Society of Jesus as a core aspect of an integrated education. Today, justice calls us to be in solidarity with all people of good will, especially with the poor and marginalized. This gives everyone in the Santa Clara community—and I emphasize everyone, because staff, students, faculty, alumni, and administrators all have multiple, university-sponsored opportunities to experience this—new ways of perceiving ideas, experiences, and beliefs from within the contexts of those who frequently have fewer options of directly leading change. In doing so, we can become voices for those who have no voices, agents for change incorporating the principles, values, and needs of those we learn with and from in communities around the world.

In combination with the individual talent, motivation, and passion of each student, member of the faculty, graduate and SCU volunteer, these institutional values encourage doing well in ways that benefit people of all walks of life. Our hope is that the greater the good, the greater will be the effect on local and global society, especially on those with the greatest need.
Thank you for your interest and support.
Paul Locatelli, S.J.
