Honors Program

Mission and Vision




Collaborating in the Catholic, Jesuit educational tradition, the University Honors Program (UHP) fosters intellectual excellence, an appreciation of ethical context, and an awareness of the spiritual and religious dimensions of human existence.



As citizens and leaders of competence, conscience, and compassion, UHP students at Santa Clara University will use their gifts to cultivate knowledge and faith to build a more humane, just, and sustainable world.
