Official Statement in Response to David Heyen’s Facebook Page

Lewis and Clark first was notified May 1 of a Facebook profile for “David Heyen” and subsequent public posts that were labeled as “concerning” by those who brought it to our attention. David Heyen is the new board chairman of Lewis and Clark’s elected Board of Trustees, who was seated on Tuesday, April 30. The college is looking into this issue just as we would review any alleged conduct of a student, employee, board member, visitor or contractor. The college has a long history of its commitment to providing an inclusive environment for all stakeholders of the college, including students, employees and visitors. Lewis and Clark remains committed to modeling our core values of service, respect, responsibility, compassion and integrity. These comments and posts do not represent the culture of Lewis and Clark.
