Virtual Community Building

Led by the Division of Student Development and facilitated by the Center for Student Involvement, this page contains resources for Seattle University undergraduate and graduate students to reduce social isolation and encourage connections while on-campus opportunities are suspended due to Coronavirus precautions.  

This page will be updated frequently so check back, especially for details about virtual activities.  

Have an idea for a virtual event or workshop to promote community building?  Click here to share the details for your virtual offering.  If you have a page on ConnectSU, please upload your event directly.  We've made it easier to complete event uploads.

In looking at what was distinctive about the way of life that they had chosen, early Jesuits talked about their communitas ad dispersionem. By contrast with the older religious orders... Jesuit communities spent much of their time scattered among the different works that individual Jesuits and teams were engaged in. It wasn’t just that communities were dispersed in fact. It was rather that the communities existed precisely to be scattered in this way.
