Last month, we shared about our soon-to-graduate Transformational Leadership student, Abdullah Polovina, and a bit of his story as the school's first Muslim student. Over the last week, the story has been picked up by The Oregonian, Seattle Times, Crux Now the International Islamic News Agency (IINA), the Sarajevo Times, among other sites (see below).?

Please note that though the article that was picked up says the school is three years old, the school's origin dates back to 1969 and it became an official graduate school of Seattle University nineteen years ago, in 1996. Seattle University itself was founded in 1891. ?
