The Alfie Scholars Program Description

The Alfie Scholars Program is calibrated to promote student excellence by helping our students

  • form strong relationships with the faculty, staff, and other students within the institution,

  • realize that they have a unique contribution to make on campus and in their chosen field, and

  • strengthen their communication, leadership, and civility skills to enable them to add their voice to the important dialogues and policies of our society.

Alfie Scholars attend, as a cohort, two of their required core curriculum philosophy courses during summer sessions before their junior and senior years. These courses provide wrap-around academic enrichment instruction and other educationally enriching activities to prepare them to be leaders for civility. In addition, throughout their years at Seattle University, Alfie Scholars participate in special programs, receptions, and other events.
