Lewis & Clark fosters a community of globally engaged citizen-leaders who share a desire to create positive change. We collaborate in academic and experiential learning, civic leadership and career development, diversity and inclusion, and wellness. We are an enduring community of scholars who inquire and work in an interdependent world, and create a place of belonging in which all students can take pride and realize their full potential.
Our four main areas of concentration – health and wellness; civic leadership and career development; diversity; and experiential learning – are designed to support students’ transition to college by encouraging personal development, promoting co-curricular learning, stimulating educational success, and helping prepare students for lifelong careers.
With over 70% of our students living on campus, this residential campus bustles with 100 registered clubs and organizations. Students learn to lead in a variety of ways, by directing outdoor trips, by serving as resident advisors, and by running the Co-Op. Through student government, they learn to be student legislators and executives. And whether they join clubs that are large, small, old, new, religious, cultural or artistic, they will discover new avenues for growth and exploration.
More than 350 student-athletes compete in 19 NCAA Division III sports programs offered at Lewis & Clark and a larger number participate in other recreational activities such as club and intramural sports.
Student Life’s professional staff works with undergraduates in creating a vibrant, colorful, and at the same time supportive and nurturing environment. The Division’s services include psychological counseling, teaching cognitive skills, managing housing and residential life, and providing health care, alongside coordinating meaningful programs for diversity and inclusion, community service, recreation and physical education, and career development.
Student Life invites you to be informed, get involved, and stay connected!
