Alumni Engagement

Seattle University alumni are unique in their passion for serving the greater good and their involvement during the campaign was essential to inspiring future generations of leaders. Alumni participation demonstrated to students that they are part of a larger, caring community that will last their entire lifetime and that is actively working to change the world. Whether attending events, volunteering or giving, alumni transform our students’ lives by providing them with powerful, diverse examples of careers, lives, leadership styles and ways of giving back. Thank you to the thousands of alumni who participated throughout The Campaign for the Uncommon Good.

Our Moment
For Mission

During the final year of the campaign—and the final year of his presidency—President Emeritus Stephen Sundborg, S.J., called on the entire alumni community to make this year their "moment for mission," setting an ambitious goal of 10,000 alumni engaging with the university by the end of the year. Alumni banded together to amplify this message, encouraging Redhawks from every decade and across the globe to reconnect with the university to ensure current and future students could access the same purpose-driven, passion-fueled education and experiences they remembered. More than 10,800 alumni stepped up—attending events, reading SU Voice, volunteering with students, sharing their stories and donating to the facets of their student experience they loved the most.
