Access Request Form

Why is it required?

Seattle University requires all new students to complete Think About It for a few main reasons:

  • To promote awareness and a campus free of sexual misconduct
  • To share the resources that are available to support students
  • So all students know about our sexual misconduct policies and local laws
  • To introduce students to the powerful role they can play in preventing sexual misconduct

What if the content of this program triggers me?

We understand the sensitive nature of sexual misconduct. Think About It was written in a trauma-informed way, however, we recognize everyone is different. If you'd like to complete this program in a supportive office on campus please call Tony Bohn at 206-296-2824 for assistance.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by the content of this program please call James Willette at 206-296-6060 so you can privately discuss your individual situation and determine the best way to proceed. We have options.

We hope this goes without saying, but we care deeply about all our students and are always available to talk.

What if I don't do it?

Once your due date has passed a hold will be placed on your account preventing you from registering for future classes.

I have ideas for improvement, where should I direct them?

There is a feedback form at the end of the program and that is the best place to submit your thoughts anonymously. If you have additional suggestions for improvement please use this online form to submit them. Or call James Willette at 206-296-6060 to schedule a time to speak individually.
