Fort Lewis, founded in 1911, is a public, liberal arts college. Its 350-acre campus is located in Durango, Colorado.


Fort Lewis College is a selective public liberal arts college that launches careers and changes lives through top-quality academic programs, experiential learning utilizing the Southwests landscapes and peoples, and a welcoming community on an inspiring mountain campus.

The Southwest has long been Americas cultural crossroads. And Fort Lewis College is the Southwests campus crossroads. With 3,900 students from 49 states, 23 countries, and 125 Native American Tribes and Alaskan Villages, our campus constantly buzzes with events and experiences -- clubs, projects, coursework, concerts, theatre, lectures, art, and even architecture that explore and celebrate the varying traditions, backgrounds, and lifestyles of our campus community.


At FLC our focus is on undergraduate education, so our students have research and experience opportunities that are often reserved for only graduate students at larger universities. Our undergraduate researchers, performers, artisans, and authors make real and meaningful contributions to their fields.


At Fort Lewis College, though, the best learning happens outside the classroom. Here the Southwests diverse landscapes, businesses, communities, and peoples are your classrooms and collaborators. Through field studies, undergraduate research, service learning, internships, and study abroad opportunities, youll apply your coursework in meaningful, positive endeavors.
