How can a university change the world? With hope.

people of hope

The Christian gospel of hope –– the promise that God will one day make all things right –– is what animates the work of Seattle Pacific University. And that gospel calls us to be active in the cause of hope, to be people who, as we watch and wait to see what God will do, are vigorously at work to make the world a better place for all of God's children everywhere.
