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.

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.”

Dean of Students Honored for Outstanding Work in Higher Education

Anna Gonzalez, Dean of the Students for the College of Arts and Sciences

Dean of Students Anna Gonzalez was recently recognized as an outstanding member of the student affairs and higher education community by the NASPA (National Association of Student Personnel Administrators) Foundation—the leading association for the advancement, health, and sustainability of the student affairs profession.

Gonzalez is one of 12 recipients of the 2015 Pillars of the Profession award, designed to honor individuals who have served as teachers, leaders, and scholars in the field.

“I am humbled by this award and credit it to all the students I’ve 39826_the-bark-logoworked with and continue to learn from, to my colleagues past and present who support me, and to my former supervisors who showed ultimate patience during my ‘truth to power’ moments,” said Gonzalez, who also teaches in the educational leadership program at the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling.

“Student affairs is an integral part of the educational experience,” Gonzalez continued. “As the first in my family to attend a four-year college in the United States, I am honored to have the opportunity to help shape a field where experiential learning, inclusion and social justice, and an ethos of care continues to be core values of our work.”

To be eligible, the recipient must have sustained professional distinction in the higher education field; served in leadership roles in NASPA; be recognized by colleagues, friends, students, or student organizations for extraordinary service; and have made significant lifetime contributions to the higher education field.

“The men and women being recognized are true pillars upon whose work many have benefited,” Foundation Board Chair Frank Ardaiolo said. “They have all served above and beyond in the growing global world of student affairs and higher education.”

This year’s award winners will be officially honored by the foundation during the 2015 NASPA annual conference, scheduled for March 21 to 25 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
