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.
This year’s Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies, which will run from November 11 to 13, focuses on the concept of movement and the systems of power that determine our mobility. For the first time, the symposium will be held entirely online, free and open to all, including those living outside of Portland.
this Friday on 11/20 the annual Trans Day of Remembrance and Trans Day of Resilience is taking place to commemorate those we have lost in the last year due to transphobic violence and to celebrate the achievements and future of our community.
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.
