Welcome to the University of San Diego

"The University of San Diego is one of the nation's finest Catholic universities, and I am honored the Trustees have placed their confidence in me to lead this extraordinary institution. I was drawn to the University because of its commitment to providing a rigorous learning environment where faith and reason are compatible and students are encouraged to become change makers. Thanks to the extraordinary leadership of the Board and President Lyons as well as the commitment to academic excellence demonstrated by the faculty and staff, USD is poised for a great future. I am excited to become part of a truly vibrant and diverse community of scholars.” — Dr. James T. Harris III, USD President
