Integrity Formation Process

  • Dear Seattle University Student Scholars:

    It is my pleasure to welcome you to Seattle University. You are joining an academic community of scholars who believe in offering you the best experience possible. We are committed to fostering an environment where all members of the SU community can contribute to SU’s mission to the best of their abilities. Our sincere hope is that you will grow intellectually, spiritually, and personally and that you avail yourself of the many opportunities to become most fully who and what you were created to be as a leader.

    Our Jesuit tradition of intellectual, moral, spiritual, and social development is the foundation of the mission of our Redhawk Commitment and Code of Student Conduct. We aim to provide all students with the tools needed for success in a pluralistic society by providing feedback about behaviors that both enhance and harm the academic community, as well as assistance and opportunities in modifying unacceptable behaviors. As a Jesuit and Catholic institution, we hold our students to the highest standard of ethical behavior both on and off campus.

    The Redhawk Commitment and Code of Student Conduct contain standards of conduct that have been established to assist in building a learning community where the respect, consideration and dignity of every single one of us are an absolute priority. The spirit of what we as a community are trying to do is clear:  We seek your assistance in maintaining a vital and engaged campus dedicated to the promotion of values consistent with academic and personal excellence. Please take the time to carefully review the information that follows as it is your responsibility to be familiar with all of the university’s standards of conduct and our Integrity Formation Process. 

    Thank you for your commitment to upholding these expectations. We look forward to supporting your learning experience here at Seattle University. If you have any questions about this information or would just like to talk, please visit the Office of the Dean of Students, call (206) 296-6060, or email me at To learn about other exciting opportunities within the Integrity Formation program such as leadership opportunities and scholarships please visit
