Travel Programs

In keeping with the Alumni Association’s mission of providing the CMC community with ongoing opportunities for engagement and continuing education, the alumni travel program offers a variety of domestic and international options to travel with fellow CMCers. All of the travel programs are of high quality and provide professional leadership. Most feature faculty participation that provides a rich educational component to the trips. Many are in conjunction with the other Claremont Colleges, providing enhanced opportunities for fellowship within the Claremont family.
