During my time at Lewis & Clark, there was a definite lack of diversity on campus among the students and faculty. And it's not just regarding race, but regional, ideological, and socioeconomic diversity. It seemed that everyone already shared many of the same experience, backgrounds, and belief, which produced an unseemly amount of groupthink on campus.
Second, for a college that should be fostering more social mobility among underprivileged student, Lewis & Clark has the fewest Pell grant recipients among private colleges in Oregon (Linfield 33%, Willamette 18%, Reed 15%, Lewis & Clark 13%).
That being said, I enjoyed my time at Lewis & Clark, but always felt that the college could be doing more to address these issues. What can Mr. Glassner do to rectify these discrepancies between a stated goal of the college and reality?
