Diversity and Inclusion Statement
The Department of Sociology and Anthropology commits to diversity, equity and inclusion in providing support for all its students, faculty and other members of the Lewis & Clark community. Representing academic disciplines that have perpetuated and now critique different forms of discrimination, we seek to use the tools of our scholarship to address persistent structures of inequity and exclusion. Our scholastic approach thus inspires a personal and departmental responsibility towards the support of diverse identities and perspectives. To further this mission we convene a joint group of students and faculty to target specific issues each semester and work towards creating a more inclusive, diverse, and creative learning environment.
