Living and Learning at Linfield University

As a result of their experience in University Housing, we want our student to grow in: Cultivating a Healthy Community, Advocating Inclusivity, and Demonstrating Introspection and Growth.

  1. Cultivating Healthy Community looks like affirming the worth of others and advancing the health of a community through actions, and contributing to environments that promote health and reduce risk.
  2. Advocating Inclusivity looks like demonstrating respect of cultural and human differences and understanding one’s own identity and the identity of others, culture, and social background and how it influences their lives.
  3. Demonstrating Introspection and Growth looks like engaging in behaviors of healthy, autonomous, and interconnected adults such as reflecting on and articulating personal skills, values, growth areas, and rationale for behavior.
