It’s no secret that we’re building something wonderful at Santa Clara. We have new homes for the arts and for law. We’re building a new complex for the sciences and engineering—to foster collaboration and discovery across disciplines. We’re building a first-rate training facility for our student athletes. And to open Santa Clara’s doors to more students, we’re building a new residence hall as well.

These structures are beautiful—and built to educate leaders of tomorrow. They’re also grounded in a sense of community and tradition, and an understanding that learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom.

What’s really important is what these places mean for people: the possibilities they create for our students and the dedicated faculty who teach them, and who guide them in research that makes the world a better place.

When we open these new buildings, we’re also opening doors of opportunity—where we educate the whole person and where we innovate for the world. And when we construct something that we want to last, we know the foundation is important—especially when it comes to values.

So take a look at what we’re building—and the transformation taking place at Santa Clara. The students we’re educating are going to do incredible things, in no small part thanks to support from people like you. We’re creating vital new opportunities for Santa Clara students now—and for generations to come. We hope you’ll join us.

A Show of Support

Students, faculty, staff rally against racism on Santa Clara University’s campus.

The Gift

Sacrifice, given willingly and with love, makes us human.

On Being Better

How can we be better to each other, particularly as white people seek to become allies?

The Sacrificial Tweet

A single misstep on social media comes at a high price these days. And yet we’re being asked to speak up louder and more frequently against injustice. What are we willing to sacrifice to keep posting?
