Linfield recognizes the differences and similarities among races, nations, cultures and their various histories and has developed college wide efforts to affirm and encourage pride in our diversity. 

Multicultural Programs functions as a catalyst and facilitator forging links among students, faculty, staff and the community. This is accomplished through individual student advising and programs that are inclusive of students, staff and faculty. Collaborative recruitment and retention efforts are made with the admissions office and alumni. Multicultural Programs works closely with Financial Aid in order to aid students in the process of paying for college and getting connected to resources.  

The mission of Multicultural Programs is to support the academic mission of the College by enhancing the educational, personal, cultural, and social development of students with a special emphasis toward the unique needs of students of color, historically underrepresented and marginalized student populations. Multicultural Programs acknowledges, celebrates, and promotes the diverse cultural experiences of each member of the college community and strives to build collaborative relationships, advocate for and promote social justice.
