Future Graduating Students

SPU: Committed to
Student Success

by Ruth Adams

At SPU, we don't aim to enroll students -- we aim to enroll future graduates. From the moment your student first connects to Seattle Pacific until the moment your student receives a diploma, a wealth of student-success resources are available. Our faculty and staff members can assist students with academic planning, financial aid, housing, career exploration, internships, and more. Read more.

Roger Feldman and Paradigm Shift New Art Installation on Campus

A new art installation has been built in Martin Square as a reflection on the Gospel of Mark, SPU's Lectio scripture for Winter Quarter. The installation, titled "Paradigm Shift," is the result of collaboration between art and theology faculty and students. Made possible by a Center for Biblical and Theological Education grant, this project started with reading Mark to identify themes, and exploring potential expressions of those themes. Over Winter Break, the process culminated in seven days of building the installation. Visitors are encouraged to interact with "Paradigm Shift" and follow Lectio online.
