Servant Leadership at PfeifferWelcome.
Cline Service Hall
A Pfeiffer University education promotes the nature to serve and the knowledge to lead. This mission is further supported through the creation of a living-learning community on campus dedicated to promoting the ideals and practices of servant leadership.
The primary elements of the Cline Living-Learning Community include a residential component, group service projects, and peer-to-peer community engagement. Furthermore, the collaborative nature of this living-learning community adds to the full personal, social, and intellectual development of the student. Students reside together in a shared learning environment that promotes academic focus, community engagement, servant leadership, and intellectual, social, and personal development. Cline Residence Hall is substance-free. Students must continually hold at least a 2.75 GPA. In addition to the GPA requirement, residents must either participate in at least five cultural credit or service events, or participate in 15 hours of service.
The living-learning community will be fully supported by Pfeiffer University through the use of professional, faculty, and student advisors who will be visible in the residence hall.
