Cover of the 2018 President's ReportThe impact of a Seattle University education—locally and globally—is at the heart of the 2018 President’s Report. 

The report highlights a banner year for academic rankings and recognition, profiles students, faculty and alumni, and looks ahead at what’s in store for the university in the years ahead. 

In his message to readers, President Stephen Sundborg, S.J., writes, “This is the beginning of a new era for the university. Together, we are transforming the campus around STEM education, accelerating technological and classroom innovation, putting in place a foundation to sustain our Catholic Jesuit character and strengthening the student experience for everyone. 

“My vision has always been a thriving university of the highest quality where all students learn deeply and are inspired to lead lives of purpose and positive change. 

“To achieve the vision, we must remain committed to serving every student and making sure that each feels they belong here as full members of our diverse campus community, that each has the support to succeed academically and that each is prepared to thrive personally and professionally. Belong, succeed and thrive are the essential foundational pillars to our educational mission.”
