Message From President Martin
July 2, 2014
On June 13 and 14, we celebrated some incredible milestones: Ivy Cutting, Baccalaureate, Undergraduate Commencement, and Graduate Commencement. In light of recent events, it was particularly meaningful for us to experience several days of celebration.
The faculty who taught and prayed for these graduates, the friends and classmates who supported them, and, of course, the family members who helped make it all possible –– were inspired to witness the Class of 2014 commence with the next phase of life.
I’ve had the great privilege of getting to know many of these graduates personally, and it was a thrill to shake each person’s hand and offer my congratulations and best wishes.

The Campaign for Alexander Hall
Alexander Hall is central to the story of Seattle Pacific — past, present, and future. SPU’s story began in 1891 with a vision for outstanding Christian education that would equip students to do good in the world. Set on an uncultivated plot of land in early Seattle, Alexander Hall — the University’s first building — brought that vision to life. Learn more.
