President Eduardo Peñalver is visiting a city near you.

Since his inauguration as the 22nd president last September, Eduardo Peñalver has been committed to building relationships with the Seattle University community. This doesn’t just extend to those who call Seattle home, which is why President Peñalver is hosting a series of events with past, present and future Redhawks nationwide to deepen those connections.

The "Meet 22 in '22" roadshows kicked off March 15 in the Bay Area followed by visits in Los Angeles, Honolulu and Portland, Ore. The tour's next stop is April 22 in Washington, D.C.

“We have what we call an ‘anchor event’ in each city,” says Ellen Whitlock Baker, assistant vice president for Alumni Engagement. “That event is for students and their families, alumni, donors, friends, college counselors—anybody who has an interest and connection with Seattle U—to meet and hear from Eduardo and other members of the Seattle U community.”

Here’s more information on the D.C. visit:
