The seal of Lewis-Clark State College symbolizes the mission and noble ideals of the institution.
The escalloped border evokes the campus’ location at the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater Rivers.
Within the border is a broad ring, a circle that represents fidelity and faith, calling to mind LCSC’s commitment to the community we serve.
The pairs of oak leaves and acorns emblazoned on the seal’s outer ring are symbols of authority and service.
At the center of the seal is a shield symbolizing strength.
The shield is divided into two fields symbolizing the unity of the college’s educational and service missions.
The dark color represents constancy. The white field symbolizes peace.
The open book on the shield depicts LCSC’s proud tradition of excellence in letters, arts, and sciences and the stylized enmeshed gears represent industry and technology.
Above the shield is a lamp that symbolizes light, life, and spirituality evoking Lewis-Clark State College’s century-plus tradition of illuminating the lives of Idaho citizens.
