Expand Transformative Student Opportunities

The CMC student experience abounds with opportunities for critical inquiry, research, discussion, engagement, and personal growth. From our research centers and institutes to the Soll Center for Opportunity, from internships to study abroad, students find inspiration to build their passions. As alumni, they take those skills and capabilities into the world, making an impact as responsible leaders.

We will expand transformative student opportunities

  • by recruiting the top emerging scholar-leaders on the basis of each student’s individual merit and potential to benefit from and contribute to our mission, regardless of financial need;
  • by removing financial barriers (beyond the cost of attendance) from the full CMC experience; and
  • by supporting the Soll Center for Student Opportunity in continuing to ensure all CMC students have every opportunity to thrive and succeed in their professional endeavors.
