Hello LC Students!

We are so glad you have made the choice to join the Lewis & Clark community! The Division of Student Life’s ultimate focus is to support and enhance your time at LC—what we refer to as the overall student experience. Whether you are in or out of the classroom, we want you to be learning, thriving, and growing.

We know we are facing unprecedented times as we navigate the global pandemic and work hard to maintain our on-campus experience in a safe and healthy way. While we may indeed be in unprecedented times, we are also able to have unprecedented opportunity. Together, as a community, we have the opportunity to really make a difference and to join together in ways that will keep everyone safe, happy and healthy. As an LC student, I know you have the inclination and the ability to make a difference in this world. Now, more than ever, we need young people such as yourself to step up and embody the values and attributes of a true LC global citizen.

Your Division of Student Life is here to support your journey. College is an exciting time, and you will discover so much about yourself, your passions, and your talents while you are here. You will also grapple with change, uncertainty, and at times, failure. The learning is in the journey, not the destination, and we in Student Life are honored to walk alongside you as you traverse these expected challenges and opportunities.

The Division of Student Life at Lewis & Clark is made up of 17 departments staffed by professionals from a broad range of backgrounds and areas of expertise. We look forward to supporting your academic and personal journey in a multitude of ways and, most importantly, we hope that you will take an active role in authoring your own student experience and will help us build a strong, exciting, and resilient LC community.

With that in mind, we are thrilled to announce we are continuing to make progress on enhancing and improving the LC student experience and the role that you can play in ensuring our collective success. In Fall 2019, we launched a Campus-Wide Student Engagement Programming Plan. Students, staff, and faculty guided changes and decision-making around the activities, opportunities, spaces, transportation, dining, and entertainment options available at LC. As we move forward with this plan, including the renovation of the Templeton Student Center and constructing new residence halls, you will be central to ensuring we re-imagine these spaces and programs with the 21st century student in mind—-you! Stay tuned for ways that you can get involved and lend your voice and expertise to these endeavors.

Again, we extend a warm welcome to those students that are new to the LC community, and to our returning students as well. Please do not hesitate to come by and engage with any of our offices, either virtually or in person. We can’t wait to partner with you on the next step in your journey. Roll Pios!

Vice President for Student Life Robin Holmes-Sullivan.
