What’s In Store for Energy in 2015

The Source - Lewis & Clark at 10.54.35 AMAs we move into spring term and a new calendar year, many of us think about getting organized, planning projects and improving our budgets. Facilities Services is doing the same, looking forward to a number of energy saving initiatives in 2015 to help reduce utility costs and improve service.

Over the break, Watzek Library was outfitted with numerous LEDs which will proliferate throughout the campus in the coming year, improving light quality and control. Similarly, upgrades to heating and cooling equipment and controls will improve service to numerous areas. For your office space, Facilities Services staff will be coming by with educational materials, products and space heating technical assistance. You will also see new and improved multifunction copiers/printers arrive for many departments early this year, through a new service coordinated by the Business Office and IT.

If you have specific feedback regarding energy use in your department or office space, please contact Amy Dvorak 503-768-7794. We appreciate your time!

Noted Philanthropist Lorry Lokey Makes $2 Million Gift to Lewis & Clark to Support Outstanding Professors

The Source - Lewis & Clark at 10.54.35 AMPortland native and Business Wire founder Lorry Lokey has made a $2 million gift to provide recognition and financial support to outstanding professors at Lewis & Clark. The gift will permanently endow the Lorry Lokey Faculty Excellence Fund, thus ensuring additional revenue to help sustain the teaching, research, and creative accomplishments that distinguish faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences. The gift is the largest from a living person in the past ten years.

“Lorry Lokey has a deep belief in the power of education to change lives and society for the better,” Lewis & Clark President Barry Glassner said. “Indeed, he has cultivated education in ways that have been called ‘transformational’ and ‘catalytic.’ We are grateful for his friendship, his generosity, and his recognition of our extraordinary faculty.”

Business Wire founder Larry Lokey, center, has already helped honor top professors at Lewis & Clark College, a liberal arts school in his hometown of Portland. A 2014 donation of $150,000 rewarded the first Lorry Lokey Faculty Excellence honorees: biology professor Kellar Autumn, left, philosophy professor Rebecca Copenhaver, next to Autumn, and choral director Katherine FitzGibbon.

At Lewis & Clark, Lokey recognizes that faculty members give so much time and effort to their students that it’s a natural extension for him to give them financial support in return. And his message to donors at all levels is straightforward: “I’d rather give money away now while I can take joy and pleasure in seeing it make a difference—and you should, too.”
