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.
