Human Resources

Employee on the phone
Seattle Pacific University faculty and staff serve a Christian university fully committed to engaging the culture and changing the world by graduating people of competence and character, becoming people of wisdom, and modeling grace-filled community.

The quality of the experience that SPU students have in the classroom and in offices on campus is largely dependent on the people who teach and work here. Because of that, Seattle Pacific is committed to attracting and retaining outstanding faculty and staff, and Human Resources provides key services to the University and its personnel.
