SCU's Jesuit Community has a 165-year history of service to students and the broader community.

Fr. Sonny Manuel,
Rector 2004-2010


Jesuits aren't just priests, but often practice other professions, enriching what they bring to their pastoral role.

Fr. Michael Zampelli,
Rector 2010-2016


We look for new ways to inspire students both within and outside the classroom, a hallmark of a Jesuit education.
