Mission Statement

The mission of Lewis & Clark College is to know the traditions of the liberal arts- to test their boundaries through ongoing exploration- and to hand on to successive generations the tools and discoveries of this quest. By these means the College pursues the aims of all liberal learning: to seek knowledge for its own sake and to prepare for civic leadership. The College carries out this mission through undergraduate programs in the arts and sciences and postgraduate programs in the closely related professions of education- counseling- and law. The College mounts these programs as both separately valid and mutually supportive enterprises. In all its endeavors it seeks to be a community of scholars who are alive to inquiry- open to diversity- and disciplined to work in an interdependent world.
