The CCE is the hub for the Seattle University Youth Initiative. Launched in 2011, this signature initiative unites campus and nearby neighborhoods to support kids and families. Our "cradle-to-career" network prepares local youth for college success and the promise of a better life. Understanding that academic achievement is just part of the equation, Seattle University partners with over 70 community organizations to connect families to resources for stable housing, access to healthcare, safe neighborhoods and living-wage jobs. Annually more than 1,500 Seattle U students participate in this effort.
Support the Center for Community Engagement during Seattle U Gives!
At Seattle University, we believe that the life of our campus and the life of our community are inextricably linked. When the connection is strong remarkable things happen—things that neither could achieve alone. Your investment will make a significant impact on the health of our community, on the futures of its young people and on Seattle U students as they shape purposeful lives.
Your gift will help the CCE build on success at the elementary school level by expanding pre-k, middle and high school partnerships.
Your contribution will foster innovation in campus-community partnerships that integrate health, economic opportunity, safe neighborhoods and affordable housing.
Thank you for helping us create a thriving future for all.
