Director of Outreach, Engagement and Innovation, Industrial Enterprise

Each day, I have the opportunity to touch the life of a college student in some small way. Fox is my place of employment, but it is also where God has placed me to serve. Twenty years from now, I believe I will look back on this season and say that these were some of the most fulfilling and fun years of my life!"

What People Love About Working at George Fox

Helen Morse

I'm thankful to be part of a God-seeking, God-honoring community, especially with my closest colleagues.

Administrative Assistant, George Fox Honors Program

Rick Muthiah

[Getting the opportunity to] attend chapel means not tending to something else (like my inbox)! I’m grateful for a mini-sabbath during the week – a recognition that we are more than what we do or produce.

Director of Learning Support Services

Jessica Lopresti

Fox is a place I have always wanted to teach at. I’ve taught in the secular world for several years, but you can’t talk about your faith there. [Here at George Fox], I can incorporate my curriculum with Christianity and talk about God and the Bible with my students.

Professor of Communications

Rachel Ryan

I also love that we’re constantly looking for ways to grow, improve and change, and it’s never stagnant. It’s a part of our culture here to focus on becoming better people and learning to serve students better.
