Wim Wiewel

President, Lewis & Clark

“I’m thrilled with Robin’s appointment as my successor. When we hired her three years ago, we knew she was a star, and she has exceeded our expectations. Her vision of the importance of students’ sense of belonging will be key to Lewis & Clark’s success in the years to come. She has shown amazing ability to get buy-in for this vision, spearheading the Templeton renovation, creating the First-Year Experience, and establishing the Center for Social Change and Community Engagement. She played a leading role in making Lewis & Clark one of the most successful colleges in the country in responding to COVID-19. In these tumultuous times, especially in regard to student issues, I can’t think of a more level-headed and experienced leader than Robin. I look forward to working closely with her in the months ahead to make this a very smooth and successful transition.”
