IME strives towards a college community deeply rooted in realized values of introspection, inclusion, and equity that empowers all students to thrive in the pursuit of their aspirations and in support of one another.
Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement leads Student Life’s commitment to a diverse and equity-oriented community. We engage students, faculty, staff, and community partners to promote an inclusive campus climate; we provide academic, social, and programmatic support to students from underrepresented communities; we deepen a vision of global citizenship through the intercultural exchange of ideas and traditions.
Student Life Mission
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.
L&C Institutional Commitment to Diversity
At its best, liberal education empowers students intellectually to understand the complex geopolitical, socioeconomic, ethical, and technological challenges confronting humanity at this juncture in history. We are building a community on and off our campus that is premised on the conviction that people learn best, and flourish the most, when they encounter perspectives, people, backgrounds, and experiences other than their own. We pursue this commitment because we know that diversity creates the best educational environment, and because inclusion speaks to our highest ideals.
