Our Offices and Programs

Career Development

Being so close to a thriving city provides countless professional opportunities. Internship sponsors and employers value the critical thinking and problem solving skills that liberal arts students bring to the table—and our Career Center can help you get a seat. We also have our very own diplomat in residence, a direct connection and mentorship for students interested in careers in the foreign service or international relations.

Find Your Community

You will find your people here. With over 120 student-led clubs and activity groups, you’re sure to find something that aligns with your interests. Our Office of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement will give you a place to be seen and heard, and to challenge norms. The Pacific Northwest is full of places to explore, and College Outdoors will do all the planning and provide the gear: your job is to show up ready for adventure. Coming to Lewis & Clark from outside the United States? We pride ourselves in creating a community that feels like home no matter where your passport was issued.

Living on Campus

On our residential campus, everything you need is right outside your door! Our campus spans a ravine and is surrounded by trees, giving you ample space to explore and connect with nature on the walk between your residence hall and your classes. Your roommates are likely to become your friends for life. Your resident advisor can give you the inside scoop on pretty much everything, and staff and faculty are here to support you. Campus will quickly become home.

Health and Wellness

There are many ways to be supported as a student at Lewis & Clark. Our Office of Student Accessibility supports our students with disabilities, and helps everyone access resources for overall health and wellness. Our athletic facilities are available to varsity athletes, club sports teams, or anyone who wants to work out. Feeling ill or need to talk to a licensed clinician? We got you covered.

Community Care and Responsibility

The safety of our community is of the utmost importance to the entire division of Student Life. Our office of Student Rights and Responsibilities educates for civic leadership, promotes equity and inclusion, and pursues balance when harm occurs. The Welfare Intervention Network coordinates outreach efforts to help students, faculty, and staff who may be a potential health or safety risk to themselves or others. Remember: Take care of yourself. Take care of each other. Take care of this place.

Signature Programs

Our signature Student Life programming includes the Great Expectations retreat during New Student Orientation, College Outdoors’s robust leadership program to build skills that apply indoors and out, a full week of MLK Jr. events and service days. Get involved!
