Sustainability is one of the main research focuses at Lewis & Clark, with the institution dedicating itself to extensive research into the subject. Bringing together the core concepts of economy, equity, and ecology, its research moves beyond its campus and benefits the world at large.

In addition to offering a number of courses in the subject, including its environmental studies major and environmental and natural resources law program, it also maintains a Sustainability Council. This is made up of faculty and students who are drawn from its School of Law, College of Arts and Sciences, and its Graduate School of Education and Counseling. Established in the late 1990s, the council offers support to students interested in studying or researching sustainability.
