Support for Students, Alumni and Friends in Hawaii

August 11, 2023

Dear Seattle University Community, 

The wildfires in Hawaii these past few days are hitting home in a particular way for our university as so many members of the SU family reside throughout the islands. Our hearts go out to the students, alumni and friends whose lives have been impacted by the devastation. Please know that our prayers are with you and your loved ones. For those wishing to support the people of Maui, which has been especially hard hit, you can donate to organizations such as the Hawaii Community Foundation’s Maui Strong Fund

As Dean of Students James Willette shared this week, resources are available for students needing support. If you are a student in need of assistance, whether it's academic, emotional or logistical, please do reach out to the university for help. 

Thank you.
