A sense of belonging, involvement and connection is crucial to student academic success, mental well-being, graduation and, ultimately, success professionally and personally. At Seattle U, we encourage the holistic support of students. To facilitate the growth of the next generation of leaders, the division of Student Development promotes the formation of strong multicultural competence, faith exploration and personal growth.
In keeping with the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis, Seattle University is committed to developing each student as a whole person—mind, body and spirit. This includes providing resources and support when students are challenged and the guidance and opportunities for students to lead as men and women for others. The division of Student Development serves every unique Seattle University student, whether they are participating in a retreat led by Campus Ministry or participating in a mindfulness glass sponsored by Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) or learning how to teach Group Fitness Class through University Recreation or finding a sense of belonging and developing leadership skills through one of the over 100 student clubs on campus. The services and resources that Student Development provides are deep and wide. They ensure students regardless of their path to getting to Seattle University are invited into spaces of welcome, acceptance and care.
