AshLee Day

Assistant Director


Ashlee started at Seattle U in Fall 2019, and this first year has definitely been unprecedented but also very fulfilling. Ashlee was born in Long Island, NY, but she was raised in the Atlanta area, and although she has relocated to the West Coast she still goes back East to see family and friends when she can. They are a proud women's college graduate, and received their B.A. in Philosophy from Wesleyan College in Macon, GA.

Prior to working at Seattle University, she spent the last five years working in education in Tacoma, WA for a community based nonprofit. She also spent two years as a Program Coordinator at the University of Puget Sound's Center for Intercultural and Civic Engagement. It is in these roles that she developed her passion for facilitating conversations about identity as well as the value of learning in community with others.

As Assistant Director, Ashlee hopes to promote a culture of curiosity, generosity and inclusivity on Seattle University’s campus by engaging with students, faculty, and staff in the ongoing work of equity and inclusion. In this work, she believes in leading by example, regularly engaging in learning and reflection for herself, following the philosophy of Adrienne Maree Brown, which encourages us all “to see our own lives and work and relationships as a front line, a first place we can practice justice, liberation, and alignment with each other and the planet.”

She is always up for conversation about pop culture, food, or the latest book(s) she read.
