Students Advocating for Gender Equality (SAGE):  sage@linfield.edu
Students Advocating for Gender Equality (SAGE) actively works toward gender equality both at Linfield College and in the greater community.  To achieve this mission, SAGE will participate in various campaigns and hold events and informational meetings to raise awareness about gender related topics.  SAGE is also committed to working to ensure all genders are represented at Linfield College and given the same access to resources as all other Linfield College students.  SAGE realizes that more than two binary genders exist and will not pressure gender-variant students to conform to a binary gender assignment.  SAGE also understands that gender roles are flexible and will not pressure students to conform to traditional gender roles.
