How We Educate
Excellent teaching, supported by high quality scholarship and personalized attention to student learning, ensures that intellectually challenging education is at the heart of our mission in undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs.
As a community of faculty and colleagues, in partnership with students, we seek a total educational experience encompassing the classroom, campus and community, that develops competence, character, and leadership.
The Jesuit educational tradition promotes independent critical thinkers informed by the humanities, open to finding and serving God in all things, and challenged by the Jesuit priority of "the service of faith and the promotion of justice" to address issues of poverty, injustice, discrimination, violence, and the environment in knowledgeable, committed, and effective ways.
Inspired by the Catholic intellectual tradition, we encourage and assist all students to explore their relationship with humanity, nature, and God; we provide all members of the university community the means to deepen the understanding of their faith; and we identify ourselves as a university that welcomes and promotes free dialogue among persons of diverse religious and intellectual traditions.
The mission of Seattle University will thrive to the extent that all persons within the university engage one another as collaborative colleagues, that our boards guide us in informed and committed ways, that our friends and the wider public take pride in, support, and call upon the services of Seattle University, and that our alumni manifest the fulfillment of our mission in their lives and professions.
Seattle University is the most racially and culturally diverse, the most genuinely urban, and the largest multidisciplinary independent university of the Northwest. Utilizing these three assets for the education of our students and the service of society presents opportunities unique to Seattle University.
