At Claremont Graduate University, we believe that innovation and diversity go hand in hand.

CGU locates diversity as an essential component of its institutional mission. To attract the best and the brightest, to solve humanity’s most pressing problems, to foster a community of life-long learners who make a difference in the world, Claremont Graduate University is committed to the inherent value of diversity.

CGU is advancing diversity and equity in higher education, and with a higher representation of domestic students of color than the national average, our student body affirms it.
