75 years of responsible leadership. During festivities for our yearlong 75th Anniversary, we plan to celebrate everything that has made Claremont McKenna College a revered and transformational liberal arts leader: most notably, our dedicated community of students, faculty, alumni, staff, parents, partners, and friends.
Through stories, archives, events, and shared investment, we pay tribute to 75 years of honoring CMC’s leadership mission, expanding opportunity for new generations of emerging scholars, and advancing innovative, interdisciplinary teaching and learning to take on the world’s biggest challenges.
CMC community, this is your website to come together, share stories, get involved, and explore the past, the present, and the bright future of our beloved institution.
