John Perkins Center
for Reconciliation, Leadership Training, and Community Development
Founded in 2004, the John Perkins Center is a first-of-its-kind partnership between the John and Vera Mae Perkins Foundation of Jackson, Mississippi and Seattle Pacific University. As a center that seeks to live into the legacy of reconciliation and community development from Dr. John Perkins, he has described it as “the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.”
For winter quarter we are still providing ways to stay connected through community engagement and reflect on reconciliation work.
Through Latreia, SPRINT, and Urban Involvement, students are able to learn and practice principles of community development through their experiences of community engagement and within transformative partnership.
Meet the reconciliation advocate and evangelical civil rights leader behind the Perkins Center.
