The campaign

Each of us has the power and responsibility to be a force for good. Collectively, we can make a positive difference for our students and the future. As individuals and as a university community, we strive to serve the greater good. Since 1891, through a mission that unites academics with empowering leaders for a just and humane world, that’s what we’ve done. The Campaign for the Uncommon Good will further position Seattle University as one of the world's most innovative and forward-thinking Jesuit universities for igniting human potential and forming leaders of purpose and impact.
