Join the Crosscut Festival at Seattle University!

Seattle University is proud to host and sponsor the Crosscut Festival May 3-4 and we hope to see plenty of Seattle U alumni in attendance—we have a special discount for you.

The Crosscut Festival is a public affairs ideas summit of thought-provoking conversation and innovative thinking, tackling the most important issues of our time with acclaimed journalists, current and former elected officials, best selling authors, and newsmakers of all types descending on Seattle U’s campus.

A slew of headliners will appear on five stages throughout campus, including Seattle rapper and icon Macklemore, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin, Obama Administration Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, distinguished Seattle U alumna Hollis Hong Wear, ’09, and the best collection of writers, journalists, and academic minds around. Check out the entire lineup and program.

Karen Lynn Maher, ’00, attended Crosscut in 2018 and had this to say, “Attending last year's Crosscut Festival was amazing. I arrived being curious and left with deep gratitude for the opportunity to participate in and observe conversations about important and complicated challenges that we face every day. I believe the solutions will unfold when we take the time to come together, listen to one another and truly search for right actions. I can't wait to attend again this year.”
