Mission and ProgramsBack to Priorities
Seattle U is uniquely positioned to take its rightful place as a university known for transforming and making a positive impact in the region and the world.
A Jesuit education means more than acquiring academic curiosity and knowledge— just as important is what you do with that knowledge and curiosity to make a difference. Our mission calls students, faculty and staff to grow personally and spiritually, to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves and their community and to make ethical choices throughout their lives.
days to goal
A $100 million investment in SU’s Mission and Programs will support key areas that further SU’s human approach and Jesuit service.
Seattle U’s programs and centers, such as the Center for Environmental Justice, the Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture, Fostering Scholars, Mission and Ministry and Student Development identified more than $40 million in important campaign projects. Examples include an endowment of $10 million and raising $3 million to further our commitment to a sustainable world by providing innovation, community engagement and research through the Center for Environmental Justice and Sustainability. And the campaign will raise approximately $30 million for research and other programs identified by Seattle U’s colleges and schools.
Beyond financial aid and excellent academic programs, student success depends on a special brand of faculty to carry out SU’s student-centered education. Our faculty must continue to be gifted educators capable of shaping the next generation of purposeful, skilled leaders. A faculty of this caliber is in high demand nationally and internationally. Seattle U must compete for the best and brightest among them or stand to lose its competitive edge among other universities. By funding and creating 10-20 new positions, including endowed deanships and professorships, Seattle U will attract and retain the highest caliber faculty.
A mission that strengthens our foundation. Programs that build for the future.Give
