Lewis & Clark on the Road
February 13, 2013
In November, President Barry Glassner and his wife, Betsy Amster, visited Asia to deepen ties with alumni and parents and build new relationships with local leaders.
“It was incredibly affirming to witness the strong Lewis & Clark presence in Seoul, Tokyo, and Shanghai,” says Glassner. “At the events we held in each of those cities, I met many alumni and friends of the college who are business leaders, or who are barely out of Lewis & Clark and already engaged in exciting careers in Asia.”
Glassner was heartened by the strong allegiance alumni, parents, and friends have to the college. “We saw the same level of enthusiasm at our event for high school counselors in Shanghai, a good sign for our continued ability to attract top international students,” he says.
The trip also helped strengthen trans-Pacific college and university relationships, such as the 40-year affiliation between Lewis & Clark and Waseda University. Glassner met with Vice President Katsuichi Uchida and staff from the Center of International Education at Waseda University while in Tokyo.
Here is a selection of photos from Glassner’s travels.
