A champion of domestic and international civil rights, Andrew Young has been at the crux of some of the most important events of the second half of the 20th century. Young’s vision of advancing economic development with private sector involvement was honed during comprehensive leadership positions in public service and private industry. He began his first of three terms as an U.S. Congressman in 1972. In 1977, under the appointment of President Carter, Young represented our country on an international level as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Serving as the Mayor of Atlanta during the 1980s, Young fostered a time of great prosperity and growth for that city, and played an instrumental role in bringing the 1996 Summer Olympic Games to Atlanta.
Young is co-founding Principal and Chairman of GoodWorks International, which allows him to execute his life-long mission of energizing the private sector to advance economic development in Africa and the Caribbean. He is Distinguished Executive Fellow and Honorary Professor of Public Policy at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University and the former president of the National Council of Churches.
The Chamberlin Lectureship was established in 1979 by the Rev. Mark and Dr. Corinne Chamberlin. The Rev. Chamberlin was a minister in the United Methodist Church and his wife, Corinne, practiced medicine in the Gresham area of Portland for over thirty years. Their purpose in establishing the Chamberlin Lectures at Lewis & Clark College was to bring to the campus Christian and Jewish leaders of national or international acclaim who have distinguished themselves in applying the religious, social and economic teachings of Jesus and the Hebrew Prophets to the life of America and the world.
