Statement on Diversity

The value that we place on diversity and inclusion at Claremont McKenna College — in our student body, in our faculty and staff, and in our curriculum — derives directly from our mission to educate our students for thoughtful and productive lives and responsible leadership in business, government, and the professions. In helping students to acquire the vision, skills, and values they will need to lead society, we must ensure that they are able to succeed in the current social, political, and economic environments, which are increasingly diverse and globally-oriented. To execute our mission, then, it is crucial that we seek to enroll a diverse student body, to recruit a diverse faculty and staff, and to place great value on respect for differences.
