Benefits Package

Lewis & Clark College is proud to offer a comprehensive benefit package designed to provide a variety of choices to best fit the needs of our benefit eligible employees and their families.

If you are a new hire, we suggest looking at the Benefits at a Glance Pamphlet.

Health - Our two medical insurance plans provide comprehensive coverage and the flexibility to choose the plan that fits your needs. Both traditional and managed care options are available, including preventive care services, prescription drug and vision coverage.

  • Kaiser HMO
  • Regence BlueCross/BlueShield (PPO)

Dental - Lewis & Clark’s dental insurance plans help to pay dental expenses for you and your dependents. All plan choices cover many basic services as well as preventive care and orthodontics for both children and adults.

  • Kaiser
  • Willamette
  • Pioneer Trust

Flexible Spending Accounts - FSAs allow you to pay for certain out-of-pocket health care and dependent care expenses on a pre-tax basis.

Employee Assistance Program - The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential, professional counseling and referral service available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for employees and their dependents. Lewis & Clark provides this program at no charge to you.

Retirement Savings - Our 403(b) tax-deferred retirement plans are another way that we help our employees build for their future. You are eligible immediately to invest your pre-tax earnings in the College’s Supplemental Retirement Annuity (GSRA). After one year of employment, you will also become eligible for the Group Retirement Annuity (GRA) plan. Fully funded by Lewis & Clark, we will contribute a percentage of your base salary towards your retirement. There is no match required!

Life, AD&D, Long Term Care, and Disability Insurance - Lewis & Clark pays for a solid foundation of life insurance and AD&D protection automatically, while allowing you the flexibility to choose additional coverage to meet your individual or family needs. Injury or illness can be a financial burden as well as a physical and emotional strain for you and your family. For this reason, Lewis & Clark also offers a College-paid long-term disability policy for benefit-eligible employees. Voluntary options are also available to increase your coverage.

Paid Time Off - Lewis & Clark provides employees with generous paid time off programs. Eligible employees accrue between 12 and 24 days of vacation, and receive between 12 and 14 paid holidays per year including the entire week between Christmas and New Years day. Sick leave is also available.

Tuition Assistance - Through our tuition assistance programs, we provide opportunities for eligible employees and their dependents to learn and grow personally and professionally by working toward an undergraduate or graduate degree from Lewis & Clark. 

Discount Program, Financial Resources, Wellness & Additional Benefits - To help you meet both your personal and professional needs, the College offers a variety of additional benefits and programs 

You are always welcome to privately discuss individual questions with a member of the Human Resources team. Please contact Helen DeVol at extension 6234 or Kris Codron at extension 6237.
