Lewis & Clark is known for its international studies program, but recent faculty and student efforts are pushing to cover an overlooked program: Middle East Studies.

A newly founded student movement called the Middle-East Initiative (originally the Arabic Initiative) is determined to show that a Middle East Studies minor and full-time Arabic language program are both needed and desired by students. Since last spring, club members have published an editorial in the Pioneer Log, gathered signatures on a petition and appealed before the Associated Students of Lewis & Clark Senate with unanimous support. All the while, they’ve been putting together the first Middle East Studies Symposium.
