Supporting yourselves and others

If you are concerned about the well-being of a friend you are encouraged to submit a care report. Care reports are directed to the Dean of Students’ Office and an appropriate course of follow-up is conducted for each report. This is one way that Linfield students can take care of each other in a time need.

There are many resources available to you and your friends:
