Glen M. Cooper, a visiting assistant professor at CMC, is a historian with a broad swath of knowledge that covers many eras and cultures. Cooper came to the College from Brigham Young University in 2014 and has taught subjects that range from ancient Greek history to Islamic history to medieval Europe and even extending to India and Byzantium.
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.
