Support the College of Education during Seattle U Gives!
A contribution to the Dean’s Fund for Excellence ensures that students at the College of Education have access to outstanding and compassionate faculty, extraordinary programs, and tuition assistance for students in need.
At Bailey Gatzert Elementary, just blocks from SU's campus, 60 of the school's 375 students are technically homeless and over 92% live at or below the poverty line. When a generous gift to the College of Education funded a full-time counselor at Bailey Gatzert, the impact was clear. In just one year, the proportion of students with more than five unexcused absences fell from 45% of students to only 24%. As interns at Bailey Gatzert, COE counseling students benefit from this partnership by gaining valuable field experience. "We believe we have the dream team," says Principal Greg Imel.
The College of Education Dean’s Fund empowers the college to be responsive, innovative, and flexible in a field that is increasingly dynamic. The impact of a gift to the College of Education is immediate and the effects can be seen in a variety of places, for instance:
$1,000 – partial tuition assistance for a student
$500 – pay a student’s exam fee
$250 – bring a guest lecturer to campus or organize a community event for students, faculty, alumni, and community stakeholders
$100 – help a grad student attend a conference
$50 – sponsor classroom materials for students or faculty
