FLC celebrates student scholars

Each spring, just before Commencement, Fort Lewis College hosts the Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities Symposium to celebrate the research and creative works of graduating seniors. This year, more than 150 projects were featured in the event either as posters, live oral presentations, or recorded videos shared online. 

In-person commencement returns

Fort Lewis College hosted its first in-person commencement in a year with multiple outdoor ceremonies celebrating nearly 430 graduating seniors. With a backdrop of the La Plata Mountains and a mix of blue and blustery skies, FLC’s stadium filled up with raucous applause and heartfelt remarks from speakers. 

All food waste from dining hall now being composted

Fort Lewis College took a major step in reducing its carbon footprint this spring by composting 100% of the food waste from San Juan Dining Hall. The Environmental Center spearheaded the effort, which is a key part of achieving the College’s sustainability and climate goals.

FLC faculty and staff receive awards for exemplary service

In the last year, faculty and staff showed immense care for students and colleagues and exhibited exceptional work, from supporting the day-to-day operations of the College with innovation and excellence to taking on extra responsibilities during the pandemic.
