Lewis & Clark promotes important conversations. Our students represent the next generation of global thinkers and leaders, and we value critical discussion of issues that inform our time. Every semester, we host a series of conferences, lectures, and symposia that highlight the liberal arts, help spark new ideas, and encourage dialogue on campus.
The following events continue a tradition of programming that both informs and shapes the future.
19th Annual Environmental Affairs Symposium
Equity and Earth
This year’s symposium explores relationships between social justice concerns and environmental issues, investigating which of these intersections have attracted the attention of scholars and activists—and which have not.
October 21–November 4
Lewis & Clark International Film Festival
New this year, student-run LCIFF screens international films that showcase unique voices, empathetic storytelling, and diverse representation in front of and behind the camera, with the goal of enriching the Lewis & Clark community and beyond.
Presenter Samuel D. Museus is an associate professor of higher education and student affairs at Indiana University at Bloomington. He consults with college campuses that seek to transform their institutions and cultivate more inclusive campus environments.
This new student-run symposium features two keynote speakers from the Graduate School of Counseling and Education: Professor of Counseling Psychology and Department Chair Teresa McDowell, and Professor of Counseling Psychology Tod Sloan.
