Updating the Mission Statement

As part of the strategic planning process, we are revising the institutional mission statement. The current statement has not changed since the 1990s and is not fully reflective of who we are today or of the collective strengths of the three schools: the College of Arts and Sciences, the Graduate School, and the Law School.

The new draft by Executive Council is below. If you have any questions or comments, please email strategicplan@lclark.edu.

Draft Mission Statement

Lewis & Clark College, a premier private institution, prepares students to succeed and to lead in a diverse, globally-connected world by providing a transformative education in a personalized and supportive environment. We deliver rigorous academic programs, teaching excellence, and high-impact community initiatives propelled by a commitment to environmental leadership and social change.
