2013-14 Undergraduate Catalog
A complete understanding of education recognizes that learning occurs both in and out of the classroom. Seattle Pacific University seeks to graduate people of competence and character who can lead the way for meaningful change in our world. Together with students, faculty, and staff, the Office of Student Life (OSL) strives to unite learning and living in a grace-filled community as we seek the uncommon path to a good life as described below:
To further strengthen this relationship, the Vice President for Student Lfe provides a liaison between academic work under the Provost and various Student Life programs. In addition to managing all the units that comprise OSL, the Vice President for Student Life acts as ombudsperson to all students to assist in resolving problems in the matter of community standards and expectations, discipline issues, and appeals.
To resolve problems related to enrollment services, such as admissions, financial aid, student accounts, or registration and records policies, students may contact the Office of the Vice President for Administration and University Relations by calling 206-281-2650.
To appeal a decision to the Vice President, a student must first complete the office or area process of appeal. This process is typically a written appeal to the department head. If the student is not satisfied that his or her interests were properly served by the area appeal process, an appeal may be directed to the Vice President for Administration and University Relations. The appeal should include all information that was submitted through the area appeal process.
