At the University of San Diego our students
are equipped with the tools they need to succeed and thrive in our dynamic and ever-changing world Soon, USD will celebrate our 75th anniversary The Envisioning 2024 strategic plan is our
way to secure a place at the forefront of Catholic higher education It’s a plan with many exciting opportunities,
but one simple goal, continued student success Now the big question, what exactly does this
plan look like? At USD, we’re building lasting partnerships with our neighboring communities, both at home and abroad From developing education courses for K-12
classrooms here in San Diego to leading peace-building seminars across the border, collaboration
and a shared changemaking vision are at the heart of what we do Knowledge and research are fundamental components
of our academic mission For nearly seven decades, USD has fostered
an educational environment where students are encouraged to think critically and actively
apply their knowledge to building a better world Changemakers believe in the power of creativity
and innovation Toreros are encouraged to explore solutions
to complex social issues while gaining a hands-on understanding of the world around them It’s this approach to learning that turns
ideas into action Ideas we believe can change the world The University of San Diego strives to be
a welcoming and collaborative community where the rights and dignity of every person are
respected We’re committed to expanding access to a USD
education for students from underserved communities both here in San Diego and around the world As a Catholic university, caring for God’s
creation is a core element of our mission and values Through sustainability initiatives, peace-building
efforts and entrepreneurial ventures, we are heeding the call of Pope Francis to take action
against the environmental challenges that threaten our planet Today’s employers are looking for ethical,
communicative and collaborative graduates A liberal arts education from USD nurtures
students’ academic, personal and spiritual development, challenges them to think creatively, and creates the foundation for a life of purpose and fulfillment At USD we envision a world where our students are prepared to make a lasting and positive impact on society The Envisioning 2024 strategic plan provides
a clear path to success and lays the foundation for our upward trajectory for years to come There’s never been a better time to be a Torero, and we’re excited for you to join us on the journey
