The Institute for Democratic Renewal (IDR)
IDR focuses on core issues facing the processes of democracy in the United States and abroad. Its work includes intercultural community building, exploring antidotes to racism and training leaders who work in multicultural communities.

The California Policy Institute at Claremont (CPIC)
This institute is a new problem-driven policy institute to focus on the state of California. CPIC looks at various policy problems facing California by examining them through the lens of the state budget. The mission of CPIC is to determine the underlying causes of these issues in order to analyze and evaluate proposed solutions. Much of the institute's work will be done by students which gives them hands-on-opportunities in research, publishing and the public policy process.
