During his influential 38-year career at the college, Michael Ford directed student activities, campus programs, alumni relations, annual giving, and residence life. He served as dean of students and as associate vice president for campus life, working with all three Lewis & Clark schools. Although he retired in 2014, he continues to chair the Dallaire Scholarship Committee and has presented a narrated history of the college at the past five Alumni Weekends. In recognition of his service to Lewis & Clark, the Michael and Mary Lynn Ford Scholarship was created at his retirement to support undergraduate students.
