Student Investments and Resources

The landscape of the student experience is ever-changing. Santa Clara students, together with students around the world, are now met with an increasingly vast set of expectations, both during their tenure on campus, and upon entering the workforce after graduation. We want to ensure that every student is supported holistically from the moment they step onto our campus.

To enhance the life skills and life experiences we provide to our students, we are prioritizing investment and funding for research projects, fellowships, and student internships, funding for academic conferences, and expanding on our student mental health resources.
