Campus Living

Learning and Living at Lewis & Clark
Our Guiding Philosophy

Campus Living co-creates a supportive, interdependent, and educationally purposeful residential community for Lewis & Clark.

To this end, we sustain the following principles:

  • Celebrate the wisdom of diversity and inclusion;
  • Promote engagement and citizenship;
  • Foster self-advocacy and personal responsibility;
  • Champion holistic student development and the betterment of the collective.

This philosophy guides our work in Campus Living as we serve our students as part of the Division of Student Life. Lewis & Clark fosters a community of globally engaged citizen-leaders who share a desire to create positive change. We collaborate in academic and experiential learning, civic leadership and career development, diversity and inclusion, and wellness. We are an enduring community of scholars who inquire and work in an interdependent world, and create a place of belonging in which all students can take pride and realize their full potential.
