Leader in Sustainability
April 16, 2015
At Lewis & Clark, our approach to sustainability is grounded in our mission to cultivate global thinkers and leaders. We build on the best available scholarship and practice—recognizing the importance and interrelatedness of ecology, economy, and equity—to extend our research and actions beyond our campus and into the wider world.
For our efforts, The Princeton Review has ranked Lewis & Clark #1 in this year’s list of Top 50 Green Colleges. We are holding a special event on Earth Day to celebrate the distinction and highlight our green achievements. Pioneering Progress will feature distinguished guests, including Oregon Governor Kate Brown J.D. ’85 and Portland Mayor Charlie Hales; Warm Springs Chief Delvis Heath; community partner awards; sustainable food and beverages; and a performance by alumni group Renegade Stringband.
