To help us kick off the new year, Emerald City Rotary is proud to welcome Seattle University President, Stephen V. Sundborg, S.J.

Father Stephen Sundborg became president of Seattle University in July 1997. He leads a comprehensive, independent university of more than 7,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 1,000 faculty and staff members.

Since becoming president, Father Sundborg’s key objectives have been to encourage student-centered education, enhance academic excellence, and develop resources to support a growing student population. During his tenure, Seattle University has built a new law school, a student center, and student residences. Father Sundborg is strongly committed to promoting social justice, a core value of the Jesuit Catholic education. He actively supports programs that encourage students, faculty, and staff to make a difference, whether in the local community or developing countries. As President, Father Sundborg has bestowed honorary degrees on such social justice leaders as Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Corazon Aquino.
