Welcome to the Mission Priority Examen (MPE) and Web page! 

Santa Clara University, along with all 28 of the Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, is embarking on an important self-study to reflect on who we are and who we want to become as a Jesuit and Catholic university. Everyone - including faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends of the university - is encouraged to learn more about our project and participate in it. We have a diverse and representative Committee who will usher our efforts along throughout the first half of 2019. Our self-study report, with recommendations for future focus on mission-related priorities, will be made available to all.

Please check out our website and especially the FAQs: this is an evolving project and new content will be added. Please feel free to contact us co-chairs with questions and suggestions if so desired.

Santa Clara University has been a leading Catholic and Jesuit university for many years: we hope to use this opportunity to be an even better one moving forward - more reflective, more intentional, and more strategic about the unique educational mission which has been handed to us.
