The mission of Gonzaga-in-Florence is a direct extension of the mission of Gonzaga University as a humanistic, Catholic, and Jesuit community of higher education. Since 1963, Gonzaga-in-Florence primarily has served undergraduates. Traditionally a year-long program, semester and summer options also are available.
Gonzaga-in-Florence is situated in the birthplace of the Renaissance and offers a unique lens through which students can critically understand and experience first-hand the interaction of culture, humanities and the arts. Through encounters with new cultures, students explore the contemporary world, while developing a deeper appreciation for the contributions of Western civilization.
All three inextricably linked dynamics of the Gonzaga-in-Florence program contribute to the holistic development of student leadership: intellectual, spiritual, and moral accentuating service and justice. Gonzaga-in-Florence promotes this mission in and outside the classroom, within the city of Florence, and in the various countries and cultures experienced throughout the academic year, semester or summer abroad.
