On the Verge of It All

We are at the edge of it all. Where all things converge. This vantage point informs how we see the world. More than envisioning tomorrow — we are empowering, engaging and embracing it. Pursuing peace and profit. Blurring borders and boundaries. Coalescing science and spirit. The University of San Diego: on the verge of a greater future that can only be seen from here.

Who We Are

The Edge of Everything

USD is home to a warm sense of welcoming that colors how we engage with the world. We’re at the border of Mexico and the Pacific, where communities and cultures come together. A gateway to anything imaginable, our campus community nurtures students, celebrates alumni, excites curiosity and inspires action to make the world a better place.
