INSIDE LINFIELD MAGAZINE Linfield is a leader in adult education, launching Oregon’s first program 40 years ago. Times have changed and delivery methods have evolved, but Linfield’s Online and Continuing Education program is still known for the high quality academics and teaching that are hallmarks of Linfield – online and at the McMinnville and Portland Campuses. We take a look at how that program has changed and been revitalized. We also hear from an alumnus on why he is a teacher and 10 other faculty share what they read over the summer. Also in this issue, you’ll read about two students who participated in two very different internships. We salute our Alumni Award winners who were recognized during the 2015 homecoming celebration. It’s an exciting time at Linfield, as the journey begins for the Class of 2019. – Mardi Mileham Fall 2015 l i n f i e l d m a g a z i n e - 3
