A new space for Lewis & Clark’s Career Development Center was one of the capital projects in the budget approved by the Board of Trustees on February 20. The to-be-constructed space will be built as an extension on the north end of Templeton Campus Center.

Construction of the center will begin before the end of the spring semester and finish in August, ready for occupancy in the 2015-16 academic year. The area in Albany Quadrangle currently occupied by the Career Development Center will become offices for Academic Advising.

The approximately 1,500-square-foot space will be built upon what is currently a patio outside the Trail Room and Bookstore. A roof deck, including a bioswale, will be constructed on top of the new center. The construction will also include other green features such as an earth tube for geothermal energy.

In addition to its highly visible new location, the office will gain a new, simplified name: the Career Center. But its mission will remain the same: to help students discover their goals and interests, connect to opportunities in the community that enrich their academic experience, and prepare for successful lives beyond Lewis & Clark.

The Career Center offers programs and services to students beginning with New Student Orientation and continuing through graduation and beyond. These services include workshops, visits to employers, networking events, and individual counseling.

Sellwood Bridge Traffic Alert for Feb. 4

The Source - Lewis & Clark at 10.54.35 AMTraffic on Highway 43 near the Sellwood Bridge will be impacted by construction activity most of the day on Wednesday, February 4.

Work will begin before the morning commute and may continue into the evening. A contractor will need to shift traffic lanes and perform a number of tasks as highway lanes north of the bridge shift west against new retaining walls. A concrete pour for the new bridge is also scheduled.

Drivers should expect delays on the bridge and Highway 43 throughout the day as crews remove old striping, add new striping, install barriers and fencing. The shift will allow crews to construct the east side of the interchange.

Drivers may want to use alternate routes such as the Ross Island Bridge or SW Terwilliger Blvd. on Wednesday.
