Lewis and Clark employs 600+ employees and adds $338.5 million in regional income annually, which represents 4.6 percent of the regional economy. The Godfrey campus is also unique; known for its beautiful, historic location on the grounds of the former Monticello College, the second oldest all-female college in the nation. The campus also features a number of eye-catching sculptures and fountains as part of the Monticello Sculpture Gardens, and is a Signature Garden site for the Missouri Botanical Gardens.The buildings on the N.O. Nelson Campus in Edwardsville were on Illinois' list of "Ten Most Endangered Historic Sites" prior to Lewis and Clark purchasing the complex and renovating the buildings. The campus is now home to more than 1,500 students and numerous community events, making this restoration one of the most successful preservation initiatives in Illinois. Lewis and Clark is dedicated to public engagement, from "greening" the campus, reducing the college's carbon footprint and providing technical assistance in sustainable practices and education, to delivering affordable healthcare to underserved populations throughout the district with a Mobile Health Unit and a federally-funded Family Health Clinic currently the only nurse practitioner clinic operated by a community college.
