Rose Institute

Rose Institute Video Voter Series 2020 logo

Just in time for election season, as California voters pore over their voting materials, the Rose Institute of State and Local Government at Claremont McKenna College has released a nonpartisan resource to help them understand the complicated propositions on the November ballot.

In brief videos close captioned in English and Spanish, students at the Rose Institute analyze each of the 12 propositions, providing useful background material in a digestible format.


Every 10 years, CMC’s Rose Institute of State and Local Government hosts a conference that coincides with the U.S. Censusoffering valued expertise to government professionals grappling with how to manage the redistricting process, as well as new laws and regulations.

In the modern era of redistricting, all district lines must be reviewed after the Census to meet strict requirements for population equality and voting rights protections.

The next president will have to address the role of federalism in a number of conflicts between federal and state jurisdiction. And the Rose Institute of State and Local Government has examined some of the policy issues that will likely arise in a recent post by Skip Wiltshire-Gordon '19.

Recently named CEO of the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA), Kelly J. Fredericks, will be the keynote speaker at a conference hosted by the Inland Empire Center at Claremont McKenna College (CMC) on Friday, March 4, 2016. This will be one of the first opportunities for area leaders to meet Mr. Fredericks when he joins OIAA in March.  Mr. Fredericks brings 33 years of aviation related industry experience to Ontario, most recently as the CEO of the Rhode Island Airport Corporation.

Students from CMC’s Rose Institute of State and Local Government have won top research awards from the Association of Criminal Justice Research/California  (ACJRCA), which recently held its fall conference.
