Linfield University enrolls a diverse student body; 60% of students are New Majority students composed of students of color, first-generation, transfer, and Pell-eligible students. Additionally, Linfield University is an emerging Hispanic serving institution and actively engaged in promoting, advancing, and confirming our commitment to diversity and inclusion. The Linfield Education Department believes that a diverse and vibrant Linfield contributes to academic excellence and critical thinking. We believe that systemic barriers disproportionately hurt the most marginalized people in society including people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women and people who identify as LGBTQ. We believe that these communities must be centered in order to break down those barriers in education. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities. All candidates are encouraged to address how their professional and lived experience, scholarship, teaching, mentorship, and/or service will build on our diversity and inclusion efforts.
