Student Life Mission:

To engage and support all PLU students in a transformative educational experience.

Student Life Vision:

As a Student Affairs Division of the first rank, we are innovative professionals who engage students in effective programs and services that encourage lives of meaning and purpose which transform communities and the world.

Student Life Tagline:

“Living the Learning”

Kat Slaby, Resident Director for Hong and Hinderlie Halls:One of the things that I have enjoyed while working at PLU is the many opportunities that we are given to not only collaborate with fellow colleagues within the division but also to seek out opportunities that might interest us. One of the great things about working at a smaller institution is that the offices within departments are not silo-ed. We work between offices to not only provide students with unique, engaging and fun activities but also to expand our interests as a professional as well.

Ángel Gonzalez, Resident Director for Foss and Pflueger Halls: “It has been great working collaboratively with different campus partner as they provide me insight into their specific functional areas and help strengthen our student life team. We all work together to support our students in their development whether it be through Student Involvement and Leadership (SIL), Student Leadership Institute (SLI) or our Residential Life Institute (RLI)”
