About the CCE

The Graduate School of Education and Counseling collaborates with professional organizations, educational institutions, community groups, and more to offer personal and professional development in the greater Portland area and beyond. These efforts are coordinated through the office of the Center for Community Engagement.


The mission of the Center for Community Engagement is to enhance the effectiveness of education and mental health professionals as agents of change by providing equity driven professional development.

Our year-round offerings prepare practitioners to meet the educational and mental health needs of all communities, and to advocate for equity and social justice within their field of practice. Many offerings are open to community members and professionals from other fields and disciplines. 


Degree programs at the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling are both nationally accredited and state approved by the appropriate associations and agencies, including ACATE, CACREP, CAEP, COAMFTE, NASP, OBLPCT and TSPC. Our continuing education programing is developed, approved and evaluated by faculty and colleagues under the same rigorous standards. Learn more about our accreditations.


Our partners include professional organizations, educational institutions, and community-based groups committed to social justice.
