An enduring education

Biology-Psychology Hall

Amelia Wilcox ’81 traces her Lewis & Clark connection over the course of her life. One of six in her family to graduate from Lewis & Clark, she earned a bachelor of arts in psychology on her way to a career in clinical psychology.

“There is a way in which this school allows students to find their own path,” Wilcox said. “The journey I took here changed me forever. My coursework did that. My overseas trip did that. I learned so many things here that have served me all of my life.”  

Currently teaching in the Department of Psychology, Wilcox previously worked as assistant clinical professor of psychiatry in the School of Medicine at the University of California at San Francisco and as a member of the medical staff at San Francisco General Hospital. A passionate advocate for the college, she served as president of the Board of Alumni from 2009-11.

In this video, Wilcox and fellow alumni reflect on what makes a Lewis & Clark education special. From our global community to our rigorous academics, we offer a well-rounded liberal arts experience.
