Office of Communications

The Office of Communications is made up of an award-winning team of marketing, public relations, design, media, and communications professionals who love to share the news and stories that make Lewis & Clark great.

Our primary audiences are

  • prospective students and their parents
  • alumni and friends of the institution
  • current and prospective donors
  • the internal community
  • neighbors and fans of Lewis & Clark in the city of Portland and beyond

Postcards, press releases, websites, social media, videos, and so much more: we are experts in determining the best way to get a message out to its intended audience, be that a one-time mailing or a fully integrated communications campaign.

As a common services office, we are a resource for all three Lewis & Clark schools. We’d love to hear your stories, and to help you share them.
