2015-2016 Senate Elections


Good morning Pioneers,

Welcome new students, and welcome back all others.  I am writing to invite you to take part in ASLC, Lewis & Clark’s student government body.  Each class will elect six student leaders to be Senators and represent their class and interests at ASLC meetings.  Not only is this a fantastic resume builder, but also a great way to be engaged with a large number of students from various backgrounds and to help enact change at Lewis & Clark. You will advocate for student interest and help write legislation that edits the school’s Constitution based on student desires.

The requirements are simple: you must be a full time student in good academic standing who is able to commit to attend weekly Senate meetings on Thursdays at 7:00pm.  To be entered on the ballot you must complete the attached application, acquire 25 signatures of support from your peers and return the application to the ASLC office in Templeton 238 by Friday September 11 at 5:00pm.

Please remember that you are fortunate to study at a school that advocates the Democratic process.  Contrary to popular belief Barry Glassner is not all-powerful, and needs students like you to be champions of our liberties.  

Feel free to e-mail me with any questions, or inquire in the ASLC office.

Forever yours,

Adrian Austin-King ’16

ASLC Director of Elections

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!

Law School Shuts Down Pro Bono Legal Clinic

Closure attributed to budget constraints due to declining attendance

By John Rogers /// News EditorTry12-e1411017844308-1024x114

The downtown Lewis & Clark Legal Clinic, a source of pro bono legal services for low-income Portlanders since 1971, will close on Jan. 1, 2015.

The Clinic was run by legal clinicians and law students enrolled in externships through the law school. It created a mutually beneficial relationship between LC and the community: students received practical law experience; low-income Portlanders received help with legal issues including child support modifications, domestic violence cases and tax controversies.
