CityU is committed to growing our graduate-level education and expanding opportunities for students. Our CityU 2020 strategic plan directs us to develop at least one new differentiated graduate program annually in a discipline that is aligned with the evolving job demands of the Pacific Northwest.
We have the privilege of helping students acquire the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in their chosen professions at City University of Seattle. Responsibility comes with that privilege. While our main goal is helping students complete their academic programs and cross the finish line, our commitment to support our students does not end at graduation.
It is summer in Seattle. Record heat, following record rain! But City University of Seattle continues to be a cool place to be during our sunshine-filled months.
At City University of Seattle, we are all about the finish, and nothing represents that better than the graduation ceremony when students walk across that finish line and receive their diploma jackets.
Our Enactus team competed in the annual Enactus United States National Exposition in Kansas City late last month. At the national competition, more than 100 university teams qualified, and of those, only 16 advanced to the semi-finals, the Sweet 16. CityU was one of the teams. Not only did CityU advance to semi-finals for the first time in school history, our team placed second in its semi-final league, ranking it among the top eight teams in the country.
City University of Seattle is a vibrant education community because of our international students and our international partnerships around the world. It gives students from Seattle to Shenzhen, from Hanoi to Hilltop, from Vancouver to Vancouver, insight into global business and global issues.
