A Message from the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees

To the Lewis & Clark Community,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we want to share our outrage at the recent Yik Yak posts and the hateful assaults on two of our students. We are particularly concerned to ensure the safety of our students and want the assailants brought to justice.

We support the administration’s responses to these incidents, pursuit of justice, and subsequent actions on campus and beyond. 

The Committee on Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) was established almost two years ago. Comprised of students, faculty and administration from all three of our schools, it is committed to listening closely to the community’s concerns and to making recommendations on how to further improve diversity and inclusion throughout Lewis & Clark. 

We are confident that through productive engagement—and bringing diversity of thought from all viewpoints to the table—Lewis & Clark will be an even better place. 

Sincerely,

The Executive Committee of the Lewis & Clark College
Board of Trustees
