Silver Anniversary

What mark has SCU carved upon Silicon Valley? In the spirit, ethics, and business that make the Valley come to life.

Silver Anniversary

Where does SCU leave its mark in Silicon Valley? In spirituality, ethics, and entrepreneurship. That’s why 25 years ago, former SCU President Paul Locatelli, S.J. formally denominated the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship, and Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education as centers of distinction to “serve as a major point of interaction between the University and society.” Here’s how they’ve changed the world.
