  • Rescheduled from a February snow cancellation! The Catholic Church is in the midst of a crisis as great as any since the Protestant Reformation. About this there seems to be widespread agreement. However, when it comes to diagnosing that crisis, analyses differ considerably. Is this a crisis of sexual ethics, a failure of episcopal leadership, an abuse of power, or all of the above? Explore these and other questions next Monday night, April 8 at 7:00 p.m. with Dr. Richard Gaillardetz, Professor of Catholic Systematic Theology at Boston College, at A Church in Crisis: How Did We Get Here? How Do We Move Forward?. Learn more about this event, sponsored by the Institute of Catholic Thought and Culture, on the event page.

  • Speak Up! Seattle University is conducting the National Survey on Student Engagement(NSSE)! This 15 minute survey will be sent to all first- year students and seniors on April 9th and will close on May 15th (check your SU inbox!). Your NSSE responses give Seattle U faculty and administrators a comprehensive look at the undergraduate learning experience. Student responses and comments are anonymous. Responses and comments are compiled by topic area and shared with directors and deans so this is an opportunity to give Seattle U feedback on your experience! Completing the survey will enter you into a drawing to win 1 of 10 Amazon egift cards for $50. Questions? Contact Sophia Sansone, Accreditation and Assessment Manager at Sansones@seattleu.edu.
