This working group will implement a student experience that sets the standard among our institutional peers for inclusive academic excellence and engagement. Our work will be grounded by a focus on equity parity and a consideration for the evolving higher ed landscape. The redesign of the SU student lifecycle will focus on career and professional formation from pre-enrollment, through integrated learning, and onward to the engaged alumni experience. In doing so, we will build upon our Ignatian heritage to decrease barriers and increase collaboration, accessibility, and inclusion.
Our work is focused on the student experience. It directly connects with Strategic Directions Goals 1-5:
With this engagement, we aim to more fully develop Seattle University as an inclusively excellent, student-ready institution.
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).
The Student Experience group will develop a Case for Change for each focus area, in a process that is both iterative and incremental.
