Do Something Great: Fr. Engh gives an address in the Mission Church.

Office of the President

Founded by the Society of Jesus in 1851, Santa Clara belongs to a long tradition of Jesuit education going back more than 450 years. At Santa Clara, we educate the whole person so that each student can reach their full potential intellectually, spiritually, and in community. We graduate students ready to lead lives that make the world more humane, more just, more faith-filled and more sustainable for all.  Our faculty and staff guide our students and provide them the tools they need to thrive. As president, priest, and professor, I have the privilege of serving this generous community at a time full of aspiration and innovation. Join us in our quest to become more.

God bless!

Michael E. Engh, S.J.
President

Welcome to Santa Clara University, the place where Jesuit education and Silicon Valley converge: where ethics informs innovation; where faith inspires action; where academic rigor animates our community; and where service and compassion create in our students the will to build a better world.
