LIFE ON CAMPUS
Fort Lewis College thrives on the spectrum of intersecting worldviews, languages, identities, and learning styles represented by our dynamic community of students, faculty, and staff. With more than half of the student body represented by students of color, the FLC family embraces all who seek knowledge, understanding, and action through education.
We recognize that your race/ethnicity, sex/gender expression, socioeconomic background, and cultural customs create a unique spirit here on campus, adding to an array of remarkable heritages central to the heart of FLC. Whether you’re from urban sprawl or rural America, an Alaska Native village or Native American reservation in the desert Southwest, we strive to ensure that you’ll discover your home-away-from-home right here in Durango, Colorado.
To ensure everyone has access to a safe place to grow and find community on campus, our Diversity programming includes the Native American Center, the Black Student Union, El Centro de Muchos Colores, the Gender & Sexuality Resource Center, and a variety of clubs. Each offers myriad opportunities for dialogue, expression, leadership training, activism, and celebration. We’re also excited to provide resources for academic inclusivity in research projects through the Literacies, Inclusion & Transit grant.
As Skyhawks from many different flocks, we believe we are stronger when we soar together. Our differences fuel an unparalleled academic experience, equipping each of us with practical tools to create positive change and a more equitable world, no matter where life leads beyond the Nest.
