Involvement outside the classroom is vital to the Seattle U student experience and adds a dynamic element to the university’s core values of Academic Excellence, Diversity, Service, Leadership, Justice, and Faith. The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) supports over 100 student-led clubs and orgs and students can check out these opportunities and get involved through the CSI’s online platform ConnectSU. SU’s Center for Community Engagement serves as the main entry point for students who want to engage in the local community. This includes service-learning opportunities, university-assisted community schools, direct service, community-based advocacy, and more.
