The Office of Multicultural Affairs is now the Department of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement! We are excited to announce the latest evolution of Lewis & Clark College’s dedication to building and sustaining a diverse and culturally vibrant campus.
The Department of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement (IME) is responsible for leading Lewis & Clark’s efforts toward its commitment to a diverse, inclusive, and multicultural campus community. We engage students, faculty, staff, and community partners to promote an inclusive campus climate; provide academic, social, and programmatic support to students from underrepresented communities; and help students develop a greater understanding of their global citizenship through the intercultural exchange of ideas and traditions. Building and sustaining a truly inclusive community is the work of all of us. At Lewis & Clark, we are here to support in this endeavor.

Change or Charity? Exploring the Potential Unintended Consequences of Doing Good
When many of us see individuals struggling or widespread social problems, we are compelled to intervene. What happens, however, when we don’t utilize a critical lens to examine the potential unintended consequences of our well-intentioned actions? This interactive workshop will interrogate the differences between charity and change. Together, we will develop best change practices for social justice advocates and activists.

Microaggressions are the commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, and environmental insults, both intentional and unintentional, that communicate negative slights to a person or group, based on race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion (Sue, 2010). They can have profound cumulative mental and physical impacts on individuals and institutional climate.
This 90 minute workshop will introduce participants to microaggressions. We will also practice and develop fundamental skills for recognizing and interrupting microaggressions on campus, in the classroom and in ourselves.
