Diversity Fund

At Lewis & Clark, we believe that people learn best, and flourish the most, when they encounter perspectives, people, backgrounds, and experiences other than their own. Diversity creates the best educational environment, and inclusion speaks to our highest ideals.

The Diversity and Inclusion Fund, administered by the Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI), provides an opportunity to support specific initiatives and opportunities, organized by LC community members, that will help us to create an ever more inclusive and equitable campus. Funds should support innovative and creative activities seeking to accomplish the aforementioned purposes, not simply to replace existing funding from other sources of routine activities.

This fund is supported by donations made specifically to support programming and initiative which aid our campus in growth in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion. As such, available funding may differ from year-to-year.
