Diversity Equity & Inclusion Pathway to Leadership

College Outdoors is committed to building a program that promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion in the outdoors. We recognize that Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are underrepresented in the outdoor industry, outdoor recreation, and the College Outdoors program at Lewis & Clark College. 

Our goal is to have all students feel welcome and valued in the outdoors, because outdoor recreation and time in nature has been shown to be relaxing, empowering, build community, and improve mental health and well-being. We hope that the College Outdoors Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Pathway to Leadership scholarship will reduce barriers and develop a student leadership team that is more representative of the L&C student body. This scholarship is funded by Lewis & Clark Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI) Diversity & Inclusion Fund.
