Welcome

The division of Student Affairs at Willamette University fosters a healthy, inclusive learning community in which students discover their passions, develop valuable skills, and commit to responsible citizenship.

We achieve our mission by:

  • Educating the Whole Person. We enrich the mind, body, and spirit of each Willamette student through a diverse range of services and co-curricular opportunities.
  • Cultivating Individual Development. We create opportunities for reflection and assessment through which students identify their strengths and areas for growth. Our students create their own plans for achieving goals in learning, life, and career.
  • Providing Opportunities for Experiential Learning. We encourage students to learn by doing. Through hands-on experiences, students acquire knowledge, develop skills, and gain insight.
  • Promoting Community Engagement. We challenge students to live the University motto: Not Unto Ourselves Alone Are We Born. Through service, students prepare for active roles in their communities.
