Residence Life

Our Connected Community

Some of the deepest and closest relationships you’ll make at George Fox will come as you connect with peers in a residential community.

Our Commitment

We are committed to …

Diversity in Residence Life

Residence Life is committed to a culture of civility, respect, and inclusivity in everything we do.

As a department, we value diversity in our staff and student leaders by engaging their unique identities. We value deeply knowing our staff and students in ways that allow us to create spaces where each is able to belong and contribute meaningfully through their authentic perspective. We are particularly mindful of our students who would identify as members of historically underrepresented communities and pursue justice on our campus.

We believe this approach has the potential to develop the whole person so students leave our residential community at George Fox equipped to live faithfully and authenctically, to lead their communities, and serve their neighbor.

Resident Assistants (RAs)

The resident assistant (RA) position is an incredible leadership opportunity. RAs have a unique role in our community to build relationships, shape our campus culture, and to create positive change.

In this role, you’ll work on a team of resident assistants under the direction of an area coordinator to help develop an effective community in your area through presence, event planning, and one-on-one interactions with residents.
