Students Fund and Build Malawian School

Global engagement is an integral part of the Lewis & Clark experience. From our long-standing tradition of overseas programs to alternative breaks, students have many opportunities to learn and serve abroad. In May, the two-year-old Lewis & Clark BuildOn chapter traveled to Malawi on a service trip they worked to fund all year. View photos and learn more about the project here.

Campus Emergency Procedures

The beginning of a new school year is a good time to review emergency procedures. The Emergency Notification System provides students with rapid notifications and instructions on what actions to take in the event of an emergency. Students are not signed up automatically, so please encourage your student to register. Through a separate process, parents are notified of emergencies via e-mail and directed to the main webpage for up-to-date information.
