Did you miss Seattle U Gives 2022? You can still make an impact today!
Institute of Public Service

What solutions are most effective for addressing climate change? How can we create and sustain more equitable workplaces that value diversity, equity, and inclusion? How can local leaders address the housing crisis in our region? What does equitable access to health care look like?

Moving the needle on these complex issues requires investing in the institutions that are training the next generation of talent. 

Consider making a one-time or ongoing gift to the Institute of Public Service, home of the Master of Public of Administration and Bachelor of Public Affairs programs. Your gift will support student scholarships, as well as professional development opportunities for all IPS stakeholders.  

Are you interested in supporting IPS?  There are several ways to get involved: 

  • Make a one-time or ongoing gift to the Institute of Public Service
  • Post job opportunities to our MPA and BPA LinkedIn groups
  • Post internship opportunities to our undergraduate Public Affairs LinkedIn group
  • Contact us about creating a Named Endowed Scholarship Fund or Named Annual Scholarship for IPS students or an endowed chair in your name
