From its origins as a parish school on the frontier, Seattle University has a rich 125-year history reflecting the grit and determination of those who built the thriving university we know today.
We will strengthen our reputation globally as a thriving university of distinction renowned for our innovation, our forward thinking and our ability to provide future scholars with a world-class education, built on moral and ethical principles, that empowers them to become change makers for the greater good.
The Center for Science and Innovation—the most ambitious building project in Seattle University history—responds to the urgent need for well-prepared leaders in the fields of engineering, science, mathematics, computer science and software engineering.
The CSI will feature 90,000 square feet of cutting edge space for teaching, research and collaboration. Dynamic learning laboratories will allow students to move from lecture to lab to analysis all within a single space. Additionally, large, multi-investigator research labs will nurture faculty-student collaboration and flexible classrooms will accommodate the core science classes required for all Seattle U students.
