Greetings From the President

Dear Friends and Visitors:

Claremont Graduate University is a remarkable place. We are proud of our 90-year history, yet we remain on the cutting edge of education and research. We are small in size but giant in reputation and impact.

We believe that world-changing ideas happen across traditional academic boundaries. Through practice-based research, our ambitious students are solving problems in their communities and building meaningful careers.

Our faculty are widely recognized as leaders in their fields who bring the latest expertise into the classroom, and we have an extraordinarily dedicated and caring staff. Our membership in the highly acclaimed Claremont Colleges is a gateway to an endless variety of intellectual, cultural, and social activities.

The result, we believe, is that Claremont Graduate University provides a graduate-only educational experience found nowhere else in the world.

It is a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the CGU family. We welcome you here, and we hope you will discover for yourself what makes the CGU experience so special.


Jacob Adams
Interim President
Claremont Graduate University
