Faculty Quick Takes
Lewis & Clark professors are experts in their fields who love to work with and learn from their students. Our faculty is made up of exceptional teachers and mentors who are also noted researchers and innovators. Small class sizes and close interaction between faculty and students create opportunities for discussion and collaboration, both in and outside the classroom. The exchange of ideas continues long after classes are over.
