Educating its students to live thoughtful and productive lives as responsible leaders on a global scale constitutes a major principle of Claremont McKenna College’s mission. By bringing internationally renowned scholars to campus, CMC’s Visiting Scholars Program offers students an avenue for attaining a global education, right here in Claremont.
College campuses are vibrant, diverse communities with a wide range of faculty and staff members who have varied backgrounds and bring different skill sets, life stories, passions and experiences to their work. In an effort to foster an even greater sense of community at Claremont McKenna College, the Dean of the Faculty’s Office has been hosting VISA (values, identities, scholarship, arts) lunches a few times per semester at the CARE Center.
Cathy Reed, the McElwee Family Professor of Psychology and George R. Roberts Fellow Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, will share a $600,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to improve the teaching of cognitive neuroscience at undergraduate institutions. Reed will share the money with two colleagues from the University of Richmond and Hampshire College.
