2010 - 2011 Exhibits

Honoring Courage (May 2011)

In 1942, 15 Japanese American students were forced by federal order to leave Seattle University during World War II. Their educations were disrupted by their unjust removal and incarceration. The indignities and injustices they endured can never be undone, but as a university committed to empowering leaders for a just and humane world, Seattle University is compelled to help with the healing process. As part of that, the Seattle University Trustees will grant these students honorary bachelor degrees at the undergraduate commencement ceremony June 12. The exhibit, Honoring Courage, tells the stories of these students and their lives following the incarceration. (2nd floor)
