A Salute to Santa Clara's Vibrant Community

Unity Week

Register Now!

As a salute to Santa Clara's vibrant community, the University hosts a campus program for admitted students and parents of African, Asian, Latinx, Middle Eastern, and Native American heritage. This celebration of diverse cultures is an exciting event for everyone to be introduced to the rich and spirited University community. This year, we will be celebrating Santa Clara University’s Unity Week virtually from Monday, April 5 through Saturday, April 10. Students and parents will be able to attend sessions from both Unity Week and Preview Week.  

During Unity Week you will be able to connect with other admitted students, current students, and faculty through our networking sessions. The highlight of the event will be our socials, which are hosted by various student identity groups and organizations from across campus. All events will be hosted on Bronco Exchange through Zoom.

We know that nothing can replace the energy of a campus visit, but the SCU spirit is contagious--even through a screen!
