Ángel González, Resident Director for Ordal and Stuen Halls: “As a native of Lós Ángeles, CA, working at PLU has thus far provided me opportunities to challenge myself and grow as a professional. Our department is very mission and student development theory driven, giving me the opportunity to really put into practice the tools acquired during my graduate studies.”

Mission:

PLU seeks to educate students for lives of thoughtful inquiry, service, leadership and care-for other people, for their communities and for the earth.

Vision:

As a university of the first rank, Pacific Lutheran University seeks to maximize the achievement of its mission and become an internationally renowned model of the New American University, integrating a distinctive liberal arts college with one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier centers for professional education.
