As residence life staff, we are committed to that integral educational component called "community." For someone to learn deeply, they need a place of security and significance. We are committed to the encouraging, facilitating and growing of community on the George Fox University Newberg campus.
We believe that residence life has a unique and exciting role in encouraging relationships of depth among students while also introducing them to various faculty and staff. Our primary mission is to know Christ deeper and to show love and grace to those with whom we live and learn. In this pursuit, it is our hope that others will see and be drawn to the unconditional love and hope of Jesus Christ.

- Understand their identity, calling and significance in Christ
- Build authentic communities
- Develop the ability to lead with grace and mercy
- Prepare for a lifetime of service to their community, church and world
