Connect to Community

Take your learning out of the classroom and into the community.

Hello! We’re happy you’re here.

The Center for Community and Global Health is partnering with four Portland community organizations to explore how story can help to heal social suffering. Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Healing Social Suffering Through Narrativeprogram gives Lewis & Clark College students opportunities to explore the role that humanities and liberal arts can play in healing.

For students passionate about taking learning out of the classroom and into the community, there’s a place for you here.

For faculty, staff, students, and community partners, the Center offers space and support for collaboration and interdisciplinary learning. Do you have a partnership or a project that supports health, healing, and the humanities? We want to hear from you.
