Strengthening the lines of communication

ASLU provides student advocacy on both campuses and connects students with social, cultural and educational events and activities. As a nonprofit student government organization, ASLU operates independently of the university.

ASLU Committee on Safety

The ASLU Committee on Safety is a subset of the ASLU in which student members collect data from and make recommendations on behalf of Linfield’s student body. The ASLU Committee on Safety partners with LPS, the DEI office and the Title IX office to serve the Linfield community in a comprehensive and transparent way. The committee has contributed to several initiatives including the implementation of the public safety emergency app and the President’s Sexual Assault Task Force.  

A formal presentation to the committee is planned for fall 2021.

Faculty and staff information sessions

This semester, faculty and staff will attend required sessions that focus on important safety topics like suicide prevention, sexual assault reporting and safety in the classroom.

Initial meetings will take place in October. Additional sessions and topics will be developed upon request or as needs arise. Details will also be shared at the new faculty orientation session at the beginning of the academic year.
