Our Hearts Are With Lewis & Clark

The community at Lewis & Clark College suffered a tremendous loss last night, and our hearts are with every member of that community.

On what should have been a day of celebration and excitement over a new academic year, the Lewis & Clark family is instead in the midst of shock and grief after a brick column collapsed, killing one student and injuring two others.

I know many of you have colleagues, friends, and family at Lewis & Clark, and I encourage you to check in with them to offer your sympathy and support. I will offer President Holmes-Sullivan any assistance that Pacific can provide in this difficult time.

If you are struggling with your own grief in the wake of this tragedy, know that we are here to support you. Students may reach out to the Student Counseling Center, and employees can find support through the Employee Assistance Program at Canopy.
