On Mission - In Solidarity
Mission Week | November 14 - 18, 2022
The mission of Santa Clara University encompasses all the many ways we express our Jesuit values, our grounding in the Catholic tradition, and our commitment to building a more just, humane, and sustainable world. We treasure our Jesuit heritage and tradition, which gives expression to our Jesuit educational mission and Catholic identity while also welcoming and respecting other religious and philosophical traditions, promoting the dialogue between faith and culture, and valuing opportunities to deepen religious beliefs. Above all else, a Jesuit education is an invitation to fully develop every dimension of your humanity.
Mission Week is a celebration of the mission of Santa Clara University. It is about a purpose - our purpose, as a Jesuit, Catholic university.
It is why we tackle issues of justice looking back on our past.
It is why we consider new perspectives on leadership as we look to the future.
It is why we prioritize care for our common home always.
It is through our Jesuit values that we find meaning and purpose.
Join us the week of November 14-18 for this inaugural event as we embrace our values and celebrate our collective mission-driven work.
October 31 - November 18, 2022
We are committed to building community and serving the needs of our neighbors inside and outside the University. Join us as we collect items for SCU's Bronco Pantry and Feed the Block, a local organization serving the unhoused community. Donation bins are located in Campus Ministry (Benson Center) and the Ignatian Center (990 Benton Street).
