Ever since its founding, the University of San Diego has been a community animated by a higher calling. In this first video in the “Living Our Mission” series, President James Harris reflects on St. Didacus, or San Diego de Alcalá, as he was known, and how his legacy lends more than just a name to this city and this university.
At USD, the Catholic tradition plays a vital role in developing students of character who are capable of confronting humanity’s urgent challenges.
