Responding to the interests of faculties, staffs, and administrations of the 7 Colleges, the Academic Deans Committee identify a rotating number of priority themes to focus this office’s attention. The two emphases for the 2017-2020 academic years are data science and justice education.
Vision: The Claremont Colleges are poised to create a model for data science education that applies innovative data methods and instruments into a contextually-nuanced and critically-examined course of study in the liberal arts tradition. This vision views data science literacy as a core and common competency across each of the colleges. Click the header above to learn more, including how to be involved.

Vision: To confront mass incarceration as a defining social problem of the contemporary era, The Claremont Colleges have launched the Justice Education Initiative. Supported by a $1.1M grant awarded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to Pitzer College, the Initiative will coordinate collaborative justice education programs across the consortium, at regional carceral institutions, and with local community partners.
