Black Lives Matter: Diversity at Lewis & Clark College

  • Lewis & Clark College 0615 SW Palatine Hill Road Portland, OR 97219 United States (map)

Last fall, the Black Lives Matter movement erupted at scores of colleges and universities across the country with students demanding changes at their institutions. After a series of racist messages and a physical assault on our campus, students mobilized to demand a safer and more welcoming College.  In an effort to respond to students, faculty developed a proposal to diversify faculty and the curriculum at L&C. This proposal was presented to the faculty at a meeting in December. Now, faculty will present that proposal to the wider community to seek feedback and suggestions.
