Silicon Valley Program

CMC Silicon Valley Program participants

As CMC’s Silicon Valley Program (SVP) begins its fifth year, it can look back on major successes. To date, 115 students from CMC and other Claremont Colleges have interned and studied in Silicon Valley, working in start-ups, established companies and nonprofit organizations, and learning what it takes to be successful in areas like product development, communications/marketing, human resources, and finance.

The CMC community is mourning the loss of Barton Evans, a member of the College’s Board of Trustees, Class of 1970 alumnus, and guiding force behind the College’s expansion into the Silicon Valley and the tech sector at large.

Evans died on May 14 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 66.
