The original chapter of the University of San Diego was written on a brisk early winter afternoon in December of 1949, when local dignitaries joined Bishop Charles Francis Buddy and Mother Rosalie Clifton Hill for a groundbreaking ceremony atop a wind-swept mesa overlooking the burgeoning San Diego cityscape.


Academic departments across the university have developed comprehensive assessment plans that identify outcomes for student learning, summary analyses of student performance and plans for improvement to achieve short-term and long-term goals. Faculty can access guidelines, templates and samples to help guide them in this process by consulting with their department chairs for assessment planning.

Institutional Learning Outcomes at USD are the layering of USD’s core values, program-learning outcomes, and undergraduate and graduate learning outcomes.

Student Reviews

University of San Diego the Sunniest School There Is!
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have no complaints about USD. They made learning enjoyable and had the best interest of their students in mind. The focus was on student outcomes and professors were always willing to go the extra mile to help students.

Great class sizes, great extracurricular involvement, needs more diversity in cultural knowledge
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

It had a small population which meant small class sizes so I loved that I was able to build relationships with my professors. It was also very big on involvement and extracurriculars so I did a lot and explored a lot outside of my studies. What could've been better was the cultural knowledge and sensitivity of the students that were drawn to attend that school.
