Dr. Benjamin Meoz
I have spent more than 15 years working professionally with college and university residential programs at both public and private institutions. My work has included learning community design, program assessment, leadership and team building, emergency management, and diversity initiatives. Recently, I completed an interdisciplinary doctorate in Psychology, Communication, and Social Work at the University of Washington, and hold a Master’s in Education from the University of Vermont.

I’m originally from Tacoma, Washington and love the vast scenery and rainy day vibes the PNW is known for. I graduated with my BS in Chemistry from Saint Martin’s University and my MA in Higher Education and Student Affairs from the University of Portland. Previously, I also worked for Washington State University’s Center for Fraternity and Sorority Life. I’m passionate about incorporating diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice into student development and the student experience. In my free time, you can catch me discovering beautiful new coffee shops around Portland, running, hiking, backpacking, or enjoying the (not so) occasional Netflix binge.
I’m originally from a small town in southern India and moved to the US for college after completing the United World Colleges program. I graduated from the Lewis & Clark College in 2019 with a double major in psychology and theatre and am pursuing my masters in Student Affairs Administration from the Lewis & Clark graduate school. I also have a background in residential mental health and am passionate about its intersections with education and student affairs. I love coffee, watching TV shows, seeing live theatre, listening to music, and everything cat related. I can be found hanging out with my cat and catching up on my favorite TV shows.
Franchesca Spann, BA ’20
While I’m originally from Simi Valley, California, I now call Portland home. I received my BA in Psychology from Lewis & Clark and minored in art and art history. During my time at LC, I lived in Howard Hall, Odell Hall, Holmes Hall, and West Apartment. Now, I work in Campus Living and also plan New Student Orientation for the undergraduate campus at Lewis & Clark. I spend my free time hand throwing pots, cooking, and crocheting.
Bailey Titus, BA
I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and will always consider Portland my true home. I received my BA in History at Seattle University with a minor in Medieval Studies, focusing mostly on women’s and queer studies. My favorite spots in Oregon are Cannon Beach and Hood River, but within Portland, you will most likely find me at one of the amazing used bookstores! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my partner and our two cats, as well watching the full Lord of the Rings trilogy almost on a monthly basis.
