Seattle Pacific University is a private Christian university in Seattle, Washington. It was founded by Free Methodist pioneers. Their primary goal was to give a home to those who seek education that derived from the Christian faith. Guided by SPU’s Wesleyan heritage, their approach to faith and education comes from the place of understanding the value of spiritual growth of the individual and how they can serve the society. Their Church of Knowledge offers students the opportunity to discover, take on, and overcome any challenges the life can throw at them.

The main mission of the university is to graduate level-headed, wise, compassionate souls with strong will and character, people who can help and nurture their community with the lessons taught at SPU. There is no discrimination, no prejudice. Everyone is welcomed.

At least 36 countries are represented on the SPU campus. The countries with the largest on-campus communities are China, Saudi Arabia, and Vietnam.
