Message From the President

By Philip W. Eaton, President


The Eatons

The stacks of boxes in my office and my home are a sure indicator that this wonderful season of serving as president of Seattle Pacific University is drawing to a close. What a privilege it has been for Sharon and me to be a part of this community for nearly 17 years.


Less than two weeks ago, I handed out diplomas once again, watching our remarkable graduates parade across the Commencement stage. Some of you were there, celebrating a son or daughter. And some of you are a few years away from that milestone, but, believe me, it will be here before you know it.


Students are at the heart of what we do at Seattle Pacific, and I thank you for entrusting these wonderful young men and women to us. I’m so proud of our students, and I’m confident that Seattle Pacific — both now and in the future — will prepare them well to make a difference all across the globe. Thank you for your partnership with us as we seek to engage the culture and change the world.


May God bless you,


Philip W. Eaton
