Santa Clara University UNIVERSITY MISSION Santa Clara University is a Catholic and Jesuit institution that makes student learning its central focus, promotes faculty and staff learning in its various forms, and exhibits organizational learning as it deals with the challenges facing it. Student learning takes place at the undergraduate and graduate level in an educa­tional environment that integrates rigorous inquiry and scholarship, creative imagi­nation, reflective engagement with society, and a commitment to fashioning a more humane and just world. As an academic community, we expand the boundaries of knowledge and insight through teaching, research, artistic expression, and other forms of scholarship. It is primarily through discovering, communicating, and applying knowledge that we exercise our institutional responsibility as a voice of reason and conscience in society. We offer challenging academic programs and demonstrate a commitment to the development of: Undergraduate students who seek an education with a strong humanistic orien­tation in a primarily residential setting. Graduate students, many of them working professionals in Silicon Valley, who seek advanced degree programs that prepare them to make significant contribu­tions to their fields. In addition to these core programs, we also provide a variety of continuing education and professional development opportunities for nonmatriculated students.
