Our Mission

The Office of Consortial Academic Collaboration works to develop and maintain effective, efficient, sustainable, and enduring cross-campus academic collaborations among the Claremont Colleges.

Guiding Principles

In order to advance the core academic missions of the colleges, two principles guide our work: (1) Do together that which either cannot be achieved alone or would be more stunning if done together; and (2) Do together that which does not differentiate among our institutions.


This work serves three primary goals:

  1. To support the development of cross-campus programs and initiatives that benefit faculty, students, and other College stakeholders.
  2. To cultivate cross-campus curricular coherence.
  3. To foster cross-campus research collaborations.
