Human Performance Lab

Human Performance Lab

At Seattle University's Human Performance Lab, we pride ourselves in the hands-on experience that students gain. While we believe having a solid foundation built upon rigorous academic curriculum is important, we also challenge our students to answer their own questions in the laboratory. Beautiful things happen when you combine education with application. Every day is a new challenge in the lab and we want to empower our students to pursue their dreams.

Students often ask us three things:

  • How can I apply what I learned in the classroom?
  • What opportunities does my degree provide?
  • What else do I need to achieve my goals?

Having access to research grade tools as an undergraduate enables them to speak from a greater platform of competence and experience as they are going forth into the world. Better student outcomes arise from this kind of student engagement. Student passions are ignited within the lab and seeing our students grow by exploring their aspirations is what drives us.
