Notable Faculty

These are the people who play a vital role in making Linfield reach its highest potential. Throughout the years each department has been fortunate enough to have educators, administrators and staff who deeply care about the success of the community. Although all of the Linfield faculty have shaped and enhanced the students and culture on campus, there are a few who have gone above and beyond in their positions.

Ty Marshall

Marshall has been a member of the theatre department since 1987. He is currently the Director of Theatre, Resident Designer and a professor of Theatre Arts. On top of teaching technical and design courses, Marshall has won several awards for his work done around Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. This includes the Kennedy Center Medallion, which honors those who have made extraordinary contributions to teaching and producing theatre. His wisdom and presence will be missed on campus as he plans to retire during 2018.
