James T. Harris III

Welcome

San Diego's first Bishop Charles Buddy and Mother Rosalie Hill of the Religious of the Sacred Heart envisioned this university on a hill as a beacon of light for the Catholic intellectual tradition. With more than 8,000 students from 77 countries and 44 states, the University of San Diego is the youngest independent institution on U.S. News & World Report's top 100 universities. As one of only 40 universities in the world designated as an Ashoka Changemaker campus, our students apply their classroom learning and God-given talents to confront humanity's urgent challenges.
