Campus Climate

Campus climate refers to the behaviors within a workplace or learning environment, ranging from subtle to cumulative to dramatic, that can influence whether an individual feels personally safe, listened to, valued, and treated fairly and with respect (Campus Climate Network Group, 2002).

The USF community took part in a campus climate survey in Fall 2017 administered by Rankin & Associates. Learn more about the process and check for updates by clicking the link below.

USF Inclusion Statement

The University of San Francisco strives to promote safe, affirming, and inclusive communities for all students, faculty, and staff to learn and work together in alignment with the University's mission.

These communities are enriched by the presence of people of different abilities, ages, colors, creeds, cultures, races, ethnicities, family models, gender identities, gender expressions, health statuses, nationalities, political views, religious, spiritual, and philosophical beliefs, sexual orientations, socioeconomic statuses, educational backgrounds and veteran statuses.

We welcome, expect, and encourage the continued pursuit of knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to build a more inclusive community which celebrates diversity and works toward justice.

Bias-Related Incidents

The University of San Francisco is committed to an inclusive, socially just and humane community. We all share in the responsibility of helping to prevent bias related incidents on our campus and reporting incidents that we may witness or experience.

What is a Bias-related incident?

The University defines a bias incident as any speech, act or harassing action that targets or attacks an individual, a group, or property of an individual or group because of their actual or perceived race, color, national origin, ethnicity, religious affiliation, sex, gender identity, disability or sexual orientation.
