More on the Speaker
Wim Wiewel became Lewis & Clark’s 25th president on October 1, 2017. He took the helm after nine years leading Portland State University.
His many accomplishments at Lewis & Clark include leading the development and implementation of our institutional strategic plan, Exploring for the Global Good; securing approval of a campus master plan; generating record levels of giving; and starting the quiet phase of our first comprehensive fundraising campaign in 20 years. To move the goals of the strategic plan forward, he has created advisory boards for entrepreneurship, sustainability, international engagement, the graduate school, and our connections with Portland.
Wim is a widely published expert in urban planning and in the way colleges and universities strengthen their home cities. As a longtime advocate of teaching and practicing sustainability, he works closely with academic, business, civic, and government leaders to drive collaboration locally and globally. He will participate in the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Santiago, Chile, in December 2019.
Wim first came to the United States as a high school exchange student and is the first in his family to go to college. He holds degrees in sociology and urban planning from the University of Amsterdam and a PhD in sociology from Northwestern University.
His wife, Alice Wiewel, serves as Oregon’s State Architect. Together they have four children and are active in Portland’s civic, arts, and cultural life.
