Clark is a vibrant living and learning community where students are encouraged to engage in a wide range of organizations, activities and programs.

On and off campus, you will blend entrepreneurial thought and liberal education with action, realize your strengths and leadership capability, and have fun discovering what you love to do. Our students’ widespread interests reflect the diverse cultural, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds of the Clark population, nurtured in an environment that values self-respect, civility, good judgment and inclusiveness.

Through close collaboration and communication among faculty, staff, students and their families, we work hard to ensure that every student is empowered to have a transformative Clark experience.
