CES Office


Community Engagement & Service at Linfield College promotes student learning, development, and civic responsibility through co-curricular and curricular service opportunities.

In fulfillment of the mission of Linfield College, “Connecting Learning, Life, and Community,” we aim to:

  • Connect Linfield students as members of the campus, community, and global society
  • Bridge students’ theoretical and practical knowledge through experiential learning opportunities
  • Foster critical thinking, problem solving, and multi-cultural competencies, and
  • Empower students to become engaged citizens and agents of social and environmental change

Our office supports students on their journey toward civic engagement by maintaining partnerships with over 100 community-based organizations; offering community service consultation to individual students, groups, and faculty; and sponsoring numerous Community Service programs and events.
