Community Outreach

SPU nursing students practice giving insulin injections.

Films melding work and faith inspire

SPU’s Center for Faithful Business launched Serving the World, the fourth season of the Faith & Co. film series. The films explore how business can be a powerful instrument in solving social and environmental problems around the world. These stories show how faith is shaping and inspiring companies to creatively manage the multiple impacts they have on the world around them, serving local communities and stewarding God’s creation. An online eight-week course complements the films.

“It was important for me to go to a college where people around me were going to help me grow, and to have professors who incorporate faith into their work and into their lives.” —Macie, Class of 2023

Connecting nurses and public health

The School of Health Sciences partnered with King County’s Public Health Departments to link nursing students with public health opportunities. The effort is part of a grant from the county, now in its fourth year. The partnership introduces eight nursing student fellows to opportunities to serve in the public health sector.

“The biggest impact on my life as a Christian is being in community with others. I definitely wouldn't be where I am with my faith without my student leadership role and my SPU community.” —Josh, Class of 2022

Students assist World Relief Seattle

SPU students seeking civic engagement set up World Relief Seattle’s Home-to-Home exhibit as part of SPU’s Latreia Engagement Day in October. The 13 students built the exhibit — which reflected the refugee/asylum journey — for World Relief’s Annual Gala.
