Why 1867?

In 1867, Lewis & Clark’s journey from pioneer vision to a premier institution of higher education began and now our Leadership Society begins at our founding year. A gift of $1,867 or more reflects your commitment to LC’s motto Explorare, Discere, Sociare (to explore, to learn, to work together) for all current and future Pioneers.
