Our Mission:

The Office of Student Persistence is here to support students to and through Seattle University. We play a critical role in supporting students at Seattle University in financial education, self-advocacy skills, and academic success. We want to promote belongingness on campus and have an open space for all students at SU to feel welcome. We provide opportunities for engagement through one-on-one appointments focused on their success. In collaborating with campus partners, student academic persistence identifies and removed 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.
