In the College of Arts and Sciences, our passion for understanding the global community influences all we do. We encourage our students, faculty, and staff to actively engage with diverse cultures around the world through faculty-led programs abroad, language studies, partnerships around the globe, service learning, International Studies, student and faculty exchanges, internships, and Xavier Global House. Arts and Sciences has led the university in its effort to develop an international focus.
The annual Imagining the World: Study Abroad and International Photography Competition highlights our college's participation in the global community. Through this contest, students, faculty, and staff capture more than a moment in their experience—they share with us a very personal window into a world. Students currently enrolled at Seattle University who have participated in a study abroad program while attending SU, or are currently international students attending SU, as well as faculty and staff, are invited to submit photos that address the theme: "Imagining the World." Entries should go beyond the "postcard" and express the student's vision and understanding of life in the host country.
Photographs will be judged on technical merit and how well they address the theme of the contest.
All photographs submitted are eligible for inclusion in the 'Imagining the World' photography book and exhibit at the Kinsey Gallery, open to the campus community and public during Spring Quarter.
Winners and honorable mention contestants were honored at the Annual Awards Ceremony and Artists Reception on Tuesday, April 30, 2019.
