Global Engagement

Health Advisory Alert: COVID-19

Latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak.

Our world is global; you should be too.  At SCU, students, faculty and staff engage in global programs and initiatives around the world.   

All of our schools and the College have global activities that include a focus on global learning and social justice.  Over one-third of SCU students participate in at least one program abroad during their time at SCU.  Research and global expertise take faculty to far-flung places ranging from Nicaragua to Nigeria.  International students choose SCU for the quality of our academic programs, our focus on social justice and our Silicon Valley location. International scholars and researchers from around the globe spend a term or year at SCU.   We think that these experiences shape our campus and sense of global responsibility and connectedness --  and that the world may be the best classroom of all.
