Kris Codron

Benefits, Leave and Training Manager

Tell us a little bit about your background and what brought you to Lewis & Clark College?

30 + years in Human Resources, specializing in benefits and leave administration. I had never worked in higher education and was intrigued by working for a nonprofit, since most of my work experience had been at the corporate level. The role was a perfect fit for me, and I have had the opportunity to expand my skills and work with a great team.


What are your HR specialties that people can reach out to you for?

I can help you with questions about:

  • Benefits (including medical, dental, life/LTD)
  • Retirement benefits
  • Leaves (including FMLA/OFLA and bereavement)
  • ADA accommodations
  • Questions about the LCCSSA or Teamster Collective Bargaining Agreements
  • Training (including required training for new hires, supervisor development, and other training opportunities)


What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?

I’m a voracious reader, I’m passionate about fiber arts of all kinds, and I love moving to keep my body healthy, whether that is gardening, dancing or working out.
