We are excited to announce that Ellen Whitlock Baker will be Seattle University’s next Assistant Vice President of Alumni Engagement, starting October 4, 2021. Ellen comes to us from the University of Washington Alumni Association (UWAA) where she was responsible for the strategic development of UW’s alumni engagement practices. This year Ellen was recognized for her university-wide leadership with the Marilyn Batt Dunn Endowed Award for Excellence, nominated by her UW Advancement peers.
“I’m thrilled to join Seattle U at this particular point in time, with the new leadership of President Peñalver and the Strategic Directions and LIFT SU setting a thoughtful and ambitious course for the university,” says Ellen.
The Seattle University Alumni Association opens pathways to engagement with the university by connecting and engaging alumni, building lifetime relationships within the Seattle U community.
To support you during these challenging times, we have gathered all our resources together to help our alumni stay connected. We invite you to engage with fellow alumni and friends through the Seattle University Alumni Association’s digital programs highlighted in the areas below.
We stand in solidarity with our Black alumni, students, faculty, staff and community-members who are experiencing the pain and suffering of this ongoing issue as well as its most recent manifestations. We commit to listening to marginalized voices, being actively anti-racist and putting our university mission for a just and humane world into action.
