Lewis & Clark College hires new Dean of Diversity and Inclusion

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Lewis and Clark College is taking a step to stop racism on campus by hiring a new Dean of Diversity and Inclusion.

Professor Janet Steverson will begin her position this summer.

This comes after a year of tension at Lewis & Clark, that included a demonstration.

Someone had posted racist comments on the social media site ‘Yik Yack’ in November.

Then, a black student said he was attacked by three white men.

Students spoke out about safety during the November demonstration, and also at a rally at the Capitol Building in Salem.
