The Office of Student Care and Support supports students through challenges in their Linfield career by problem-solving, connecting students to on- and off-campus resources, and fostering self-advocacy and resilience to overcome future barriers. Common areas of concern we support students through are mental health, academic challenges, social or interpersonal conflict, and balancing life commitments both on- and off-campus.
