So many members of the SCU community live according to our Jesuit and Catholic values, and actually build the "more humane, just, and sustainable world" that is our mission. However, frequently, we don't connect the lived mission with the words of our university commitments. One priority of the Division of Mission and Ministry is to highlight how we at Santa Clara University live as people with and for others - people in community.
Santa Clara University's Vision, Mission, and Values
This is what MISSION looks like at SCU
"The real measure of our Jesuit universities lies in who our students become. Tomorrow's 'whole person' cannot be whole without a well-educated solidarity. We must therefore raise our Jesuit educational standard to educate the whole person in solidarity for the real world."
-Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, Superior General of the Society of Jesus, speaking at Santa Clara University in October 2000
