Board of Advisors

The Lewis & Clark Sustainability Advisory Board was formed to assist in the development of Lewis & Clark’s Sustainability Initiative (LCSI): an intellectual hub comprising all three campuses to address the most pressing issues connected to the development of a just and sustainable society. The Advisory Board plays a crucial role in this endeavor. Its members provide expertise and guidance as we seek to create educational opportunities responsive to challenging times, develop students into capable leaders, and make Lewis & Clark more connected, visible, and impactful in the Portland community and beyond. Sustainability is one core theme of Lewis & Clark’s strategic plan.


Members represent a range of diverse backgrounds who can link the classroom to practice by providing mentoring for students, support for programs, and insight for faculty and staff. Board members should, therefore, represent a broad range of experience, expertise, geographical locations, and professional fields. Members meet bi-annually and requirements include:

  • Participating in a minimum of one meeting per year
  • Committing to a renewable, three-year term
  • Providing annual financial support for the College’s sustainability initiatives
