Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement

Building and sustaining a truly inclusive campus community is the work of all of us. At Lewis & Clark, the Department of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement is here to support in this endeavor.

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. 



Creating Community.

Exploring Identity.

Experiencing Cultures.




Upcoming Events

January 23rd, 2016


  • As we come together against racist Yik Yaks that make visible the larger work for all of us to do together as a community, it is important we are accurate and lift up the good work being done not only by this department, but by many hard-working people on this campus now and in the past. We hope you’ll join us on Tuesday, December 1st from 9:30-11am for a drop-in celebration in the IME/ISS Suite (3rd floor Templeton) to welcome the new IME Director, Nathan Baptiste, to his first day on the job.  There will be coffee, treats, music, conversation and community.

    Hate speech like that posted on Yik Yak yesterday has no place on our campus, nor in the larger world. In fact, the posts violate the core values of the L&C community and, more specifically, violate the Discrimination, Harassment, and Hate or Bias-Motivated Conduct Policy.
