Lewis & Clark College’s Crisis Management Plan is a basic guide to providing a response system, by the Lewis & Clark College Administration, to a major crisis or emergency occurring on the College Campus.
Distinguished Speaker Fund
Departments and programs in the College of Arts & Sciences are invited to submit proposals for funding from the Dean’s Office to host distinguished speakers. In 2009 the Faculty Council advised the Dean of the College to establish this proposal mechanism in the light of the number of requests to cover expenses for speakers and the limited budgetary scope for funding the requests. The main purpose of this program is to enrich the academic life of the College of Arts & Sciences. Requests to fund initiatives that do not have a significant impact on the College’s academic program will not be considered for funding.

Lewis & Clark Collaborative Research Program (Summer 2013 to Spring 2017) Funded by an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Grant
Lewis & Clark College has been awarded a $700,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon foundation to develop and implement over the next four years a program to enhance student-faculty collaborative interdisciplinary research in the arts, humanities and humanistic social sciences. There are two components of the program, one that targets increased opportunities for faculty and students in the classroom, and another that enhances student-faculty collaborative research in the summers. The summer research portion of the grant is being administered under the college’s existing Summer Collaborative Faculty/Student Research Program. A description of the classroom portion of the grant and the first annual call for proposals can be found here.
Mathematical & Natural Sciences Student Travel
The College will devote up to $10,000 per year from indirect cost recovery from science research grants to support travel of students to scientific conferences to present their results. It is expected that this will enable conference attendance for eight to ten students per year.
Students must be nominated by their faculty mentors. Normally only one student per year may be nominated by each faculty member in order to ensure that students from many different labs can be supported. Students applying for this support will be expected to have first applied for a SAAB Grant.

Student Event Funds
These funds are designed to enable (or to assist) off-campus field trips and excursions that supplement course goals by contributing directly to the curriculum. These funds can also be used for class dinners, cooked at faculty homes, or at off-campus venues with some course tie-in. Applications must come from faculty (or staff at faculty behest). Each faculty member can apply for one-such grant per class per semester. We regret that we cannot fund on-campus food (e.g., donuts, pizza brought to class) or student club events.
