Sesquicentennial 1867–2017

During the 2017–18 academic year, Lewis & Clark will celebrate the 150th anniversary of its first year of classes. Throughout the year, we will honor our institution’s distinctive past as we prepare for its bright future.

The goals of the sesquicentennial year are 

  • to promote engagement within the college;
  • to encourage philanthropic giving;
  • to engender a sense of levity and fun.

Engage with the digital exhibition: Lewis & Clark at 150: The “Cinderella College”
