Jesuit Mission Orientation
Welcome to the online mission orientation at Seattle University. Here you can begin a journey on the way to understanding the Catholic, Jesuit identity and mission of Seattle University. We are grateful to Xavier University in Cincinnati for allowing us to adapt materials they had developed.
Originally intended as an orientation for our Board of Trustees, the videos, texts, and questions are suitable for a wide variety of audiences interested in understanding our Catholic Jesuit mission more deeply. Please feel free to share these resources and to contact with questions and feedback at MissionandMinistry@seattleu.edu.
