School Information
"Lewis & Clark is a private institution with a public conscience, a residential campus with global reach. Students and faculty throughout all three of Lewis & Clark’s schools—the undergraduate College of Arts and Sciences, the Graduate School of Education and Counseling, and the School of Law—pursue new ways of knowing by combining classic liberal learning with pioneering collaboration." The university offers 29 majors and 31 minors. (Source: https://www.lclark.edu/about/) (Source: https://college.lclark.edu/academics/)
General Information
Lewis and Clark College has taken steps to implement elements of race in its training of students. Students were segregated by race into separate orientation sessions (Zoom break-out rooms). The exact content of the training is not yet clear, nor is it clear whether the training includes elements of C.R.T. See developments below:
