International Students and Scholars

The Lewis & Clark community welcomes and supports international students.

International students play an important and integral role at Lewis & Clark. Their opinions challenge the assumptions and beliefs expressed by U.S. students and faculty members in the classroom. Their lifestyles bring cultural diversity and new ways of doing things to campus life. Their presence provides opportunities for the community to look beyond its borders.
