Intellectual Rigor

The Campaign will provide resources to ensure each academic department and program will maintain its leadership position in its respective field, with priority to recruitment and retention of world-class teacher-scholars, the development of powerful, focused curricula, and multidisciplinary education through co-teaching across differences in both perspective and expertise.

Our students excel in situations that require ingenuity and adaptability, expanding critical thinking and meaningful discussion across a spectrum of disciplines, professions, and personal causes.  CMC, through the power of a liberal arts curriculum, is committed to higher, deeper, and broader learning.

We will provide a full array of research opportunities; strengthen institutes, centers, and labs; and expand support for faculty-student research. We will allocate greater resources to develop advanced literary and quantitative capabilities, including enhanced support for the Center for Writing and Public Discourse and the Murty Sunak Quantitative and Computing Lab, and to strengthen global education opportunities and off-campus experiences in Washington, D.C., and Silicon Valley.
