Equity Committee

At Lewis & Clark, we are committed to honoring the many ways in which diversity strengthens our community. The Committee on Equity and Inclusion (CEI), previously named the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) —composed of faculty, staff, and current student representatives, and chaired by Mark Figueroa, the Dean of Equity and Inclusion —promotes and improves these values in the institution’s programs and practices. The committee’s charge is to develop institutional approaches to shared issues and opportunities involving the three schools and to collaborate with The Executive Council and The Deans Council, as appropriate, in doing so.
