The Office of Multicultural Affairs is now the Department of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement! We are excited to announce the latest evolution of Lewis & Clark College’s dedication to building and sustaining a diverse and culturally vibrant campus.
The Department of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement (IME) is responsible for leading Lewis & Clark’s efforts toward its commitment to a diverse, inclusive, and multicultural campus community. We engage students, faculty, staff, and community partners to promote an inclusive campus climate; provide academic, social, and programmatic support to students from underrepresented communities; and help students develop a greater understanding of their global citizenship through the intercultural exchange of ideas and traditions. Building and sustaining a truly inclusive community is the work of all of us. At Lewis & Clark, we are here to support in this endeavor.

An Evening with Sister Helen Prejean - Registration is Closed for the Event
Sister Helen Prejean has been instrumental in sparking national dialogue on the death penalty. Sister Helen is a member of the Congregation of St. Joseph and began working at Hope House from 1981 – 1984. During this time, she was asked to correspond with a death row inmate Patrick Sonnier at Angola. She agreed and became his spiritual adviser. After witnessing his execution, she wrote a book about the experience. The result was Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States.
