still guides the university in its commitment to Catholic, Jesuit
education in the liberal arts tradition, with respect for diversity
and open dialogue in the pursuit of truth.

58 buildings on the Main Campus and the Medical Center, and student
residences that can accommodate more than 5,000 students.
