Our Purpose

The Sundborg Center for Community Engagement is a mission-driven organization, connecting campus and community through programs and partnerships that align with Seattle University’s values and strategic goals.

  • We serve as a bridge connecting campus and community, to walk alongside our neighbors and amplify their voices. We listen to community, hearing scholar and family voices that drive decisions for change.
  • We lead by inviting students to join us in service, shaping tomorrow's leaders by connecting the classroom and community. Community Engaged Learning is an educational experience that applies an academic perspective to social and environmental issues affecting communities.
  • We partner with faculty and community through course and placement development that prioritizes the skills Seattle U students needed for working towards a more just and humane world and effect positive change.
  • We expand our work in community engaged learning to help shape leaders for a better future.
