Multicultural Programs

The purpose of the Office of Multicultural Programs is to cultivate an inclusive, positive, and supportive campus community where every nursing student can be successful. We engage students in leadership opportunities and enrichment activities that support their academic, social, emotional, and co-curricular needs. Multicultural Programs provides the tools necessary for nursing students' development as vibrant members of the nursing profession and Linfield community.

In Lak' ech

Tu eres mi otro yo/You are my other me

Si te hago daño a ti/If I do harm to you,

Me hago daño a mi mismo/I do harm to myself

Si te amo y respeto/If I love and respect you,

Me amo y respeto yo/I love and respect myself

-Mayan precept quoted by poet Luis Valdez

That is, RESPECT: Respect is valued for all students, faculty, staff, community partners and members regardless of self-identified ethnicity, race, religion, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, socio-economic status, or abilities and disabilities.
