George R. Roberts ’66 P’93, co-founder of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (KKR) and its co-chairman and co-chief executive officer, delivered the keynote address at the College’s 66th Annual Commencement ceremonies on May 18. Roberts spoke about his years at CMC and his experience in the business world, imparting advice on success and leadership to the graduates before the conferring of degrees amid shouts and cheers from the graduates and their loved ones on Pritzlaff Field.
Dear Members of the Claremont McKenna College Community,
CMC professor and George R. Roberts Fellow Shana Levin was installed as the Crown Professor of Psychology during a luncheon ceremony on March 6 at the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum.
Levin currently chairs the psychology department and is the third academic (via endowments from the family of Trustee Steve Crown '74) to be installed as a Crown Professor at the College.
The re-naming of Claremont Residence Hall on March 6 was, quite literally, a crowning achievement.
