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. Your gift can fuel transformational programs like Search retreat and provide critical support for Counseling and Psychological Services to care for students who suffer from mental health challenges. A gift can also underwrite experiences like the exploration of the Pacific Northwest’s natural beauty through UREC’s Outdoor program. Finally, your gift can be life-changing for students, whose dream of a college degree seemed unlikely by supporting the Outreach Center. 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.
