Commitment to Equity and Inclusion
Lewis & Clark College honors the liberal arts tradition as a learning community committed to diversity and inclusion. The Office of the Dean of Equity and Inclusion educates, advocates, promotes, and engages the Lewis & Clark community in diversity, equity and inclusion to foster and support a multi-cultural, multi-religious, multi-identity college community where all feel challenged to venture from their comfort zone, feeling supported and a part of the college community, as they grow and learn.
In June, President Wiewel outlined nine Institutional Commitments the College would pursue as we work to diversify the campus and create an environment where all members of our community are seen, heard, and valued.
