125,000 Hours of Service Final Tally
The goal: Record 125,000 service hours by Seattle Pacific University students, faculty, staff, alumni, and parents during the University’s 125th anniversary year, September 2016 — June 2017.
The result: More than 228,000 service hours were achieved by 1,386 SPU community members!
Service hours included SPU events and organizations such as SPRINT, CityQuest, the Perkins Center, and Latreia. Other hours were recorded through academic internships and clinical practicums including nursing, teacher education, marriage and family therapy, and clinical and I/O psychology. Finally, we included individual or group alumni, staff, and parent volunteer efforts in their churches or communities.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to tell us about your service and send in photos. We know this is just a fraction of the many ways our community members are at work here and around the world.
Since our earliest days as Seattle Seminary, SPU has been committed to serving the community. As you will see in the submissions below, that commitment remains stronger than ever.
