Our Jesuit tradition is reflected in all of the University's programs, with special resources dedicated to reaching out to the community at large.


  • Jesuit with students linking to campus ministry
    Campus Ministry

    Although rooted in the Catholic tradition, the University honors and respects all paths to the divine.

  • Residential Learning Communities

    Some of Santa Clara's pioneering learning communities offer additional programs for students interested in spirituality and Jesuit tradition. 


  • Hurtado Scholars

    With the University's support in educating our students most in need, the Hurtado Scholarship Program endeavors to transform its scholars into competent men and women who seek to serve others and positively contribute to society.

  • Jesuit Volunteer Corps

    Jesuit Volunteers are called to the mission of serving the poor and marginalized, and in doing so creating a community of kinship.
