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

In keeping with the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis, Seattle University’s division of Student Development 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 opportunities for students to lead as men and women for, and with, others.


The division of Student Development serves over 7,000 unique Seattle University students. That means your gift will have a ripple effect, impacting students from every corner of campus.

When you support Student Development, you support students. While the services and resources that Student Development provides are deep and wide, this Seattle U Gives we’re spotlighting three areas that ensure students, regardless of their path to Seattle University, are invited into spaces of welcome, acceptance and care.

  • Fuel transformational opportunities for students to explore leadership and contribute to the campus community through the Center for Student Involvement.
  • Provide critical support for the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) to champion the success of underrepresented students and promote an inclusive learning environment for all students to build intercultural awareness and skills.
  • Power the education and support programs offered by Wellness and Health Promotion to help students navigate their college experience in a healthy and holistic way.
