About ENVX Symposium

Lewis & Clark College’s Environmental Studies Program sponsors an annual Symposium series of events, building on the broad theme of Environment Across Boundaries (ENVX). ENVX speaks to how our students cross a wide range of intellectual boundaries as they seek new scholarly concepts and skills; geographic boundaries as they apply these concepts and skills to explore environmental issues around the world; and communication boundaries as they engage with people on all sides of these issues, ideally working toward mutual respect and collaborative solutions. Symposium offers the Lewis & Clark community and general public an opportunity to experience this broader approach to environment.

Our 25th annual Symposium, “Deconstructing the Apocalypse: Holistic Evaluations of Climate Futures,” will be held October 18-22, 2022.  The symposium will include a keynote address, panel conversations, art events, and a career fair.  Check back later this spring for full details.    

We welcome you to cross intellectual, geographic, and communication boundaries with us in the context of some of the most important environmental issues we face today.  


L&C’s five academic student-led symposia reflect our commitment to inquiry, innovation, collaboration, and global engagement.
