Why Work at SCU?
Santa Clara University founded in 1851 by the Society of Jesus as "Santa Clara College", is California's oldest institution of higher learning. It was established on the site of the Mission Santa Clara de Asis, the eighth of the original 21 California missions.
We're located in the heart of California's Silicon Valley on approximately 104 acres of pristine land with almost 9,500 people in the Santa Clara University community.
The Catholic Jesuit University has a 152-year tradition of educating the whole person for a life of service and leadership. This diverse community is dedicated to educating students for competence, conscience, and compassion.
Working here is not just about working in a great location, it's about living a great life and about how the right work experience can make all the difference in the world.
Santa Clara University cordially welcomes neighbors and other guests to enjoy our cultural, educational, and recreational programs.
We aim to be a good neighbor and a resource for the greater Bay Area. Concerts, plays, art exhibitions, NCAA sports, distinguished public lectures and international conferences, professional development, and daily Mass-there is something going on almost every day at our beautiful campus.
