Student Experience

Introduction

Our work is focused on the student experience outside of the classroom. It directly connects with Strategic Directions Goals 2-5: 

  • Strengthen student professional formation
  • Enhance the student experience
  • Support the success of our community
  • Reposition our university for change

With this engagement, we aim to more fully develop Seattle University as an inclusively excellent, student-ready institution.

Focus Areas

Working with campus partners we have identified four key aspects of the student experience where the University has the opportunity to make the highest positive impact through systemic innovation and reimagining. We look forward to diving more deeply in these areas by engaging with multiple student voices, campus partners, and external benchmarking partners and stakeholders around those identified aspects (in alphabetical order).

  • Advising
  • Belonging
  • Onboarding
  • Professional Formation

Cases for Change

The Student Experience group will develop a Case for Change for each focus area, in a process that is both iterative and incremental.
