Parents Council

The Parents Council consists of current and past parents and serves as the leadership and representative volunteer organization for the Lewis & Clark College Parents Association. The Council enhances the L&C experience for students and their families by advising and supporting the Office of Alumni & Parent Programs and by helping parents connect with other parents, alumni, students, staff, faculty, and administrators.

Parents Council members give at the Leadership Level annually, gather for events, advise Lewis & Clark leaders, contribute their support, inspire and mentor students and alumni, and serve as ambassadors and hosts in their region. The Parents Council receives advisory, logistical, and dedicated assistance from the Office of Alumni & Parent Programs.
