Raising awareness, pursuing commitments, and tracking progress for a more sustainable CMC

Claremont McKenna College was founded on the principle of preparing leaders of the future for the challenges that lie ahead. Yet, we are also dedicated to being leaders of the present. One of the most significant challenges we, as a global community, face is the climate crisis. Now, more than ever, CMC needs to lead the way — not in empty promises but in actions.
