About Us

We do a lot at ASLC, but all branches of ASLC are expected to follow common goals. We’ve listed our mission statement and values statement below.

The Mission of ASLC

  1. Facilitate better communication between students, faculty, administration, and the wider Lewis & Clark community
  2. Assist student organizations with:
    • Financial resources
    • Institutional support
  3. Provide an open forum for students to address their concerns and grievances

The ASLC Values Statement

Equitable—We will provide individualized & community-based support, creating ASLC initiatives and legislation that center those with marginalized or disadvantaged identities.

 Justice-Driven—We acknowledge that LC as an institution systematically oppresses many underrepresented groups, and we will strive to change these systems to center those with marginalized identities.

Effective—We will set realistic and relevant goals, in alignment with our mission and the desires of our constituents, and we will hold ourselves and each other accountable to the promises that we make.

 Community-Based—We will take on projects and devote our time and resources to initiatives that will benefit those within and beyond the Lewis & Clark community, even when it does not benefit us individually.

Transparent—We will share, both with ourselves and with the wider community, information related to our work within ASLC to hold us accountable to each other and to the student body.
