  • Mission:
  • Claremont McKenna College

    Claremont McKenna College is a highly selective, independent, coeducational, residential, undergraduate liberal arts college. Its mission, within the mutually supportive framework of The Claremont Colleges, is to educate its students for thoughtful and productive lives and responsible leadership in business, government, and the professions, and to support faculty and student scholarship that contribute to intellectual vitality and the understanding of public policy issues. The College pursues this mission by providing a liberal arts education that emphasizes economics and political science, a professoriat that is dedicated to effective undergraduate teaching, a close student-teacher relationship that fosters critical inquiry, an active residential and intellectual environment that promotes responsible citizenship, and a program of research institutes and scholarly support that makes possible a faculty of teacher-scholars.

    The Roberts Environmental Center (REC) at Claremont McKenna College

    The mission of the Roberts Environmental Center is to: provide students with a comprehensive and realistic understanding of today’s environmental issues, and the ways in which they are being and can be resolved; identify, publicize, and encourage policies and practices that achieve economic and social goals in the most environmentally benign and protective manner; and encourage the appreciation, conservation, and stewardship of natural resources, particularly on public lands in Southern and Eastern California.

  • History:
  • Established in 1946, Claremont McKenna College (CMC) is a highly selective, undergraduate liberal arts college with a curricular emphasis on economics, government, and public affairs. Unlike so many other colleges, which champion either a traditional liberal arts education or the acquisition of professional and technical skills, CMC builds bridges between the two. By combining the intellectual breadth of the liberal arts with the more pragmatic concerns of public affairs, CMC helps students acquire the vision, skills, and values they will need to lead society.

    Originally founded as Claremont Men’s College, CMC became coeducational in 1976 and changed its name to Claremont McKenna College in 1981 in honor of its most visionary and founding trustee, Donald C. McKenna. With an on-campus enrollment of approximately 1,200 students, CMC is currently the youngest and smallest college ranked in the U.S. News & World Report top 20.

    CMC houses cutting-edge Research Institutes (including the Roberts Environmental Center), offering students and faculty the unique opportunity to merge research, teaching, and learning. CMC is also a member of The Claremont Colleges, a consortium of five undergraduate colleges and two graduate institutions. Based on the Oxford/Cambridge model, The Claremont Colleges represent the only planned consortium in the United States, offering CMC students diverse opportunities and resources typically only found at much larger universities. In September 2007, the Robert Day School of Economics and Finance was established and now offers multiple programs, including a Master of Arts in Finance degree.

    Environmental and Sustainability Reporting at the Roberts Environmental Center
    For over a decade, many of the world’s largest corporations have produced voluntary environmental and sustainability reports. The most common reason has been to assure stakeholders—employees, investors, and customers—that the company takes environmental and social matters seriously and acts responsibly. Students and faculty at the Roberts Environmental Center have been studying these reports for many years and their methods and ongoing results are presented on the Center’s website in graphical form, in published sector reports, technical papers, and books. These reports are analyzed using the Pacific Sustainability Index (PSI).
