Student Life

StudentsWe foster a welcoming and inclusive community, developmental opportunities and services as a catalyst for students to become ethical leaders with meaningful lives that positively impact a global society.

The Student Life staff at USD is responsible for all of the areas listed to the left. We believe strongly that learning takes place in a variety of educational contexts and so have provided numerous opportunities for students to become actively engaged on the campus. Through all of these various venues, students add to the vitality of campus and at the same time develop practical skills and gain personal insight. The development of student’s leadership capacity is a major goal of the University of San Diego. Active participation in student life is a vehicle for gaining invaluable leadership experience as well as receiving direct leadership training.

We encourage you to search our website for areas of interest. If you have any specific questions and/or would like to speak with our professional staff in any of these areas, feel free to call the Division of Student Affairs at (619) 260-4588.
