Lewis and Clark Graduate School

We are united in our commitment to serving others.

A Lewis & Clark graduate school education is built upon the values and practices associated with critical thinking, individual growth, and social justice. Our programs combine rigorous academic work with unparalleled hands-on and field-based experiences—students spend nearly 200,000 hours working in Portland-area schools and mental health agencies each year, beginning the first semester of study.
