SPU President Daniel J. Martin announced that he will resign his position effective April 5, 2021. Martin served as president for nine years, and is only the 10th president in SPU’s 130-year history.
In an email statement to the SPU community, Martin said, “I have decided it is the right time to transition from my role as president of Seattle Pacific University. Following this resignation, I accepted an offer to serve in a leadership role at a healthcare foundation for a national health system. The nature of the role and the healthcare system’s expectations that I begin before the end of April will require me to transition prior to the conclusion of the academic year.”
