Susan Okamoto LaneSusan Okamoto Lane, M.Ed.

Dean of Multi-Ethnic and Wellness Programs

Susan Okamoto Lane is the director of the Department of Multi-Ethnic Programs at Seattle Pacific University. With more than 20 years of experience, she is someone who has seen big changes at SPU, including a commitment to increasing the ethnic diversity of students and that every student, faculty, and staff member would engage in increasing our understanding of what it means to be reconciled to God and to one another.

Susan has been described as the “iron fist in the velvet glove,” as someone who “builds things to last,” and is becoming known on campus for her great story about inviting the Black Panthers to her high school. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington, a master’s of education degree from Lewis and Clark College, and a graduate diploma in Christian studies from Regent College.
