At Claremont Graduate University, we prepare scholars and practitioners to be leaders in their disciplines and active citizens in creating positive change in the world. Realizing equity and justice in the spaces and places we occupy, whether in the disciplines where our scholarship is created or in the fields in which our practice occurs, requires reflection, critical thinking and application of the knowledge that we possess.
