Professor of Law Janet Steverson is Lewis & Clark’s new dean of diversity and inclusion. She is currently chair of the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion and will begin her new role at the end of the academic year.
A graduate of Harvard Law School, Steverson joined our faculty in 1990 and is lauded for her teaching and leadership. In 2009, she was named the law school’s Douglas K. Newell Professor of Teaching Excellence for her dedication to student success and the ways in which she “enriches the academic experience with pragmatism, rigor, and humor.” The law school class of 2013 honored her with the Leo Levenson Award for Excellence in Teaching.
