Values

Since 1890, USF has provided a high-quality, values-based education that encourages growth through the:

  • Acquisition of knowledge
  • Development of leadership skills
  • Practice of service

Private support is essential in order to sustain our ability to teach and model the Franciscan tradition.  Our community of alumni and friends, corporates and foundations, faculty and staff, students and families each have a role in continuing the extraordinary heritage.

Service

A USF, education is fashioned by Franciscan values and characterized by a deep and abiding faith. Students learn and grow by:

  • Focusing on reverence for the unique dignity of each person
  • Encouraging a trustful, prayerful community of learners
  • Serving one another, society and the Church
  • Fostering peace and justice
  • Respecting creation

These values are plainly evident and visibly reflected across USF’s campus, inspiring and encouraging servant leadership in each student. That means a gift to USF is not only a good investment; it’s an investment that will do good.
