First Generation Student Resources
Linfield’s diversity is complex and intersectional as reflected by our student body. Our students have a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences and we are proud that 28% of our student body consists of first-generation students and the incoming class of 2019 is composed of 39% first-generation students. We also have a sizeable number of faculty and staff who are also first-generation students. Given our history of providing access and economic mobility, we are a community that is dedicated to the success of all our students, regardless of background, by providing rigorous opportunities to grow socially, intellectually, and professionally. The success of our efforts inspires us to build an inclusive sense of community where students can live out our mission of connecting learning, life, and community.
