Lewis & Clark Graduate School

The Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling is committed to a vision of social justice that deeply values the rich diversity of voices and perspectives that constitute our global community. Through our professional programs, community engagement, and scholarly research, we help create and sustain opportunities for dialogue, inquiry, and social action.

We invite you to join us for our first annual Social Justice Symposium and Alumni Awards Reception. This day-long symposium provides an opportunity for practitioners in the fields of education and counseling to come together and explore, share, and discuss ongoing and emergent issues related to equity and social justice in our work and communities. Graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners are warmly encouraged to attend.

Through workshops, discussion groups, and presentations, the symposium will take an interdisciplinary approach to help participants explore new ideas and make connections across professional roles. The symposium will provide attendees with the opportunity to explore new and deeper understandings of the ways education and counseling professionals can collaborate to better serve their students and clients, and to advocate more effectively for equity and social justice in their respective fields of practice.

Participation in the symposium is offered at no cost. Morning refreshments and lunch are included.

Directly following the symposium will be an awards ceremony and reception to recognize alumni from our Counseling Psychology, Teacher Education, and Educational Leadership programs who have made outstanding contributions to their fields that have advanced social justice. Light refreshments and beverages will be served.
