Student Leaders: Urban Involvement

What is UI?

UI Logo

Urban Involvement connects SPU students to a variety of community organizations through weekly service teams and quarterly immersion experiences.

UI is facilitated by student leaders, supported through the Associated Students of Seattle Pacific (ASSP), and under the mentorship of John Perkins Center staff.
