As President Martin stated in an open letter to students on November 25, 2015, “Although I am proud of Seattle Pacific University’s long-standing commitment to reconciliation in general, and to racial and ethnic reconciliation in particular, I know there is more we can do." At Seattle Pacific, we want to be known as a place where diversity, justice, and reconciliation are recognized, nurtured, and honored. We continue to listen, dialogue, and take action around these important issues to creative a bias-free, inclusive community.
