Antioch University Seattle is a supportive community, full of people doing extraordinary things for one another and for society. We celebrate this work in a variety of ways, from community action and partnerships, to formal awards, to small, informal expressions of gratitude and individualized support.
In 2014, Antioch University Seattle reaffirmed its commitment to diversity and inclusion through the establishment of its new Office of Diversity Services.
