“Robin rose immediately to the top of an impressive field of candidates. Through her management of campus crises large and small, Robin has proven herself to be a natural leader who knows how to bring people together to get things done, even in the most challenging circumstances.
“She cares deeply about our students. She has profound respect for our faculty and the primary role they play in making Lewis & Clark the special place it is. She admires the dedication and hard work of the staff who make it all possible.
“And while Robin will be a new leader for a new time, she understands our culture and has a deep appreciation for the learning traditions that have made Lewis & Clark the outstanding liberal arts college it is today.”
