Students come to Lewis & Clark because they seek to be part of a worldwide community. Across our three schools, we provide opportunities to get immersed in unfamiliar cultures and develop a broader context for global understanding.
Over half of our undergraduate students participate in off-campus and overseas programs, and all must demonstrate competency in a second language and explore another culture. Our law school offers a global law certificate and overseas study, externship, and work opportunities. Faculty and students from our graduate school have traveled to Uganda to lead family therapy training and have done related work in Egypt and India.
