The faculty, staff and students of the School of Psychology, Family, and Community (SPFC) at Seattle Pacific University strive to become a community of learners:

Guided by Faith • Exploring the implications of vital expressions of Christian faith for the human condition as well as for emotional and relational healing and health.

Rooted in Academic Discipline • Fostering rigorous and creative learning environments as well as contributing primary scholarship to the scientific study of psychological and social processes.

Committed to Service • Grounding our learning community in the theory, research and application of our disciplines in order to produce skilled graduates who can serve with character and competence in a broken world. • Nurturing creative partnerships with our local community and beyond in order to serve in and learn from socially and culturally diverse settings.
