Annual Spring Cultural Events

In spring, we celebrate.

"Lewis-Clark State College prepares students to become successful leaders, engaged citizens, and lifelong learners." - LC's Mission

"No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow." - proverb

Even at a time when we have to socially distance and attend events by Zoom, there are still many meaningful opportunities to meet our mission. Indeed, these annual events are the heart and culture of our campus; they give us focus and the chance to partner across disciplines and departments, help each other, and celebrate our community.

Everyone on campus has a role to play in making these events successful: organizers, volunteers, supporters, attendees. Faculty are key in helping students attend, modelling attendance, and guiding students to make meaning of the events.

Whether you have been including campus events in your syllabus for years, or you are new to the practice, your ideas are highly valued. For some background and a place to start, here is Connecting Campus Programming to our Classes, a workshop facilitated by Marlowe Daly-Galeano, Sarah Graham, and Amy Minervini. Here are a few useful links from the workshop:
