The Meridian

The Meridian is an annual undergraduate publication dedicated to providing a forum for student views on international and cross-cultural issues. We believe that student discourse outside the classroom enhances education and builds much-needed community. To date, the journal has included essays, research papers, journal excerpts, poetry and photographs, all of which are contributed by students.

The Meridian is the oldest publication at Lewis & Clark College and is entirely student-run. The editorial board of the Meridian consists of students and operates autonomously of the faculty, administration and staff of the college. The Journal is a separate entity from the annual International Affairs Symposium, but is distributed around campus in conjunction with the event in late April.
