Food with Spirit

  • Food With Spirit is a Seattle University group that focuses on sustainable, urban agriculture and food justice in a domestic and global context. Along with water, food sustains life, a fact we often take for granted in our consumer choices. Food With Spirit has an emphasis in social justice but also encourages healthier individual food choices. We grow and harvest seasonal food crops for local food banks, host work parties to maintain four raised garden beds on the corner of 13th and Marion, on-campus at Broadway Garden, Chardin Garden and the Potager Garden outside the Student Center. We collaborate with other clubs and programs to produce/promote educational events that focus on environmental and food justice and sustainability.

EcoSanga

  • To be a Buddhist is to be both an ecologist and a conservationist. This is the vision EcoSangha strives to promote. It is a vision modeled on the Buddha as the Great Physician who is called to the service of those in pain and suffering, who scientifically investigates the nature of and prognosis for an ailment and then compassionately effects a cure. The progression from symptom to cure is presented by the Buddha in his fundamental teaching of the Four Noble Truths: symptom, diagnosis, prognosis and cure.

Sustainable Student Action 

  • We are an environmental justice group that engages in political education, student organizing, direct action, and solidarity efforts. Our framework for understanding and addressing the complicated issue of climate change includes analyses of the science behind greenhouse gas emissions, the interplay of environmental racism and ecological degradation, economic systems that contribute to climate change, and is rooted in democratic rather than hierarchical leadership development. We have led the campaign to divest the University's endowment from fossil fuels for the past four years and are still working to build student power around where our school's money is invested and to convince the university to live up to its aim of building a just and sustainable world. We always welcome new members no matter what your major or experience with student activism, come through and join the movement for environmental justice!

Rotaract Club

  • The Seattle University Rotaract Club is a great way to not only do service and create change in the community, but to make connections with other  like-minded students and business leaders. As part of District 5030, we have connections with Rotary and Rotaract clubs all throughout Seattle.

    We meet every other week to plan events and discuss issues we are passionate about. We participate in about two service events a month, sometimes helping to support our fellow Rotaract clubs with their events or assisting our sponsoring Rotary club with theirs. At the end of the year we throw a Spring Banquet and Auction, with proceeds either going to the organization of the club's choosing or to funding an international service project.

    Rotaract is a fun way to get involved on campus and in the community. It is more than just a club on campus, it provides you with a great network of people throughout Seattle and all over the world. Many great opportunities and experiences come from being a part of Rotaract, like mentoring events, internships, jobs, and international service opportunities. Please, feel free to come to a meeting or service event and try us out!

The Gender Justice Center

  • At Girls on the Run, girls in the 3rd-5th grade and 6th-8th grade participate in an after-school program like no other. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the Girls on the Run curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms. Throughout the season, the girls make new friends, build their confidence and celebrate all that makes them unique. The Girls on the Run lessons encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. Participants explore and discuss their own beliefs around experiences and challenges girls face at this age. Physical activity is woven into our program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health. At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a celebratory Girls on the Run 5k event. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.
