Remote/ Virtual Employer Engagement

The current situation at Seattle University resembles that of many other universities across the nation. The campus—including the Career Engagement Office —is physically closed and operating virtually.

For the purposes of recruitment, all events and interactions should be conducted virtually. The latest campus information on reopening safely in the Fall can be found at

Stay Connected: Meet virtually, email, or call to consult with our External Relations staff:

  • Carol Lwali, Sabrina Wise, and Christian Russell are here to support you. And we are actively reaching out to our employer partners to assess hiring needs & plans and to share virtual and remote services.
