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.
CMC's Army ROTC program won first place in the Task Force South Ranger Challenge Competition last weekend in San Diego.
The Ranger Challenge, a grueling event started in 1982 to crown the best two-person “buddy” team of Rangers at Fort Benning, Ga., has evolved into a nation-wide competition and is often referred to as Army ROTC's varsity sport.
From the moment the Claremont McKenna College CARE (civility, access, resources, and expression) Center began operation with an open house on August 30, students, faculty, and staff have been utilizing the Center’s offerings.
The CARE Center, located on the second floor of the Heggblade Center, aims to strengthen community on campus with services and programs focused on education about identity and communicating across difference.
The Claremont University Consortium has received a $1.5 million grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to establish a new Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) to help faculty members enhance their teaching through programming, consultation services and support programs.
A CMC education provides the foundation of a thoughtful, productive life and roles of responsible leadership. The return on CMC values is incalculable. The College just took another major step forward to help students translate their many strengths and interests into real world opportunities.

When asked at a Roberts Pavilion Dedication planning committee meeting last spring if CMC’s Student Art Council would like to be involved in the grand opening, I said, “Absolutely, yes.”
In addition to serving as home of CMS Athletics, Roberts Pavilion has so much potential as a CMC gathering place. In reflecting upon the success of the grand opening and Art Council's involvement, I hope to see Roberts Pavilion playing host to more events that tap into the diverse interests of our student body.
It’s not every day that college undergraduates author an article published in a leading science journal. But that’s just what happened for CMC seniors Becky Cheng ’17 and Nitin Kuppanda ’17 last spring. They did the heavy lifting on a Current Biology paper about a bacterium that attacks and kills only males of a certain fruit fly species.
Part of the CMC credo is to encourage students to continually challenge themselves, searching for new perspectives and perhaps along the way, deeper insight. And each year the Welcome Orientation Adventure (WOA) underscores that belief as it seeks to nudge incoming students out of their comfort zone as they begin their college careers.
Starting on the third day of first year orientation, WOA is four days and three nights of adventure; this year from August 22-25.
U.S. News & World Report has ranked Claremont McKenna College No. 9 in its list of the best liberal arts colleges in the nation. In its 2017 rankings, released today, CMC tied for ninth with Davidson College in North Carolina among 239 liberal arts colleges in the U.S.
Good morning, and welcome to our Claremont McKenna Convocation for the 2016-17 academic year.
We are so excited and so grateful to celebrate the first convocation in the Roberts Pavilion.
Let’s all please recognize George Roberts, our board, and the many generous leaders of our college and community, on whose shoulders we stand today, for helping to realize the vision for this spectacular facility.
