  • Seattle University is driven to provide academic excellence and state-of-the-art opportunities to its students, and to serve our community and world by addressing society’s most vital issues. We are a university on the rise, shaped by hard work, driven by our mission and committed to providing the best education and personal transformation possible. The cornerstones of a Seattle University education include academic success, professional and personal formation and empowering leaders for a just and humane world.

    Private financial support affords all who benefit from SU services and programs even greater levels of access and opportunity through innovative new programs; funding for student scholarship awards; technology, equipment and improved facilities; and recruitment and retention of the faculty who continue to make this university a center of excellence. Study at Seattle University deepens students’ awareness and appreciation of a faith that promotes justice, engages culture and embraces dialogue.

    Donor generosity represents an important vote of confidence in SU’s  work, mission and vision from our alumni, friends, volunteers, parents, faculty, staff, retirees, and current students.
