The Racial and Ethnic Diversity Initiative at SPU
A Word About Our Commitment to DiversityFrom the Blueprint for Excellence
The gospel calls us to ensure, in every way we are capable, that all of God's children flourish. When we are a community of embrace, rather than exclusion, to use Miroslav Volf's terms, we are following the mandate of the gospel. Our vision to engage the culture and change the world tells us that we must address the challenge of racial reconciliation. Seattle Pacific University has a three-pronged strategy:
- To increase the percentage of students, faculty, staff and trustees of color.
- To improve our campus culture and environment to welcome racial and ethnic diversity.
- To build bridges with our urban partners for meaningful, trusting collaboration, and partnership in the task of community development.
