Have an academic concern about a student?


Our Mission:

The Office of Student Persistence is here to support students to and through Seattle University and play a critical role in supporting students in financial education, self-advocacy skills, and academic success. We aim to promote belongingness on campus and to create an open, safe, and brave space for all students at SU to feel welcome.

In collaborating with campus partners, we work to identify and remove institutional barriers to empower students to attain their educational goals and maximize their personal and professional development. We believe persistence at Seattle University happens as a team and we hope students will feel welcome to connect with us before, during, and after their time at Seattle University.
