Why Choose Seattle U

"I think Seattle University is a great place for any student who wants to go into education, because of the ability to solve the issues head on.  There is a respect for other ethnicities and cultures that are represented in our communities, and so we really understand what it looks like to be culturally responsive.  We understand what other cultures are experiencing in schools on a daily basis, and we really dig deep into why that is actually happening. And so if you really want to make a change, if you really want to be able to address social justice, if you want to be able to address inclusivity and equity, Seattle University is the place for you to be able to do that, because you're being taught what it looks like to be doing that in practice."
