Professional Formation

We empower students to engage in career exploration and experiential learning to optimize their professional and personal potential. Students will be able to identify, access, connect and build communities to cultivate their formation. This engagement also deepens self-knowledge, enabling students to choose meaningful career paths and excel in a diverse, global society.

We work to advance diversity and inclusion as a core strategic priority in comprehensive career education that is in alignment and reflects Seattle University’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion mission.

Whether you’re a student, alumni or hiring professional, you are welcome to connect with SU’s Career Engagement Office – a team dedicated to helping you find meaningful career and industry engagement.

Learning Labs & Programs

Campus partners including faculty, staff, and student organizations may request career workshops on topics such as career exploration, resume writing, interviewing skills, and more.
