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.

Upcoming Events

Rediscover Cuba - A Cultural Exploration
March 28 - April 5, 2017

We have secured room for a small group to travel through Cuba on a trip we are calling “Rediscover Cuba: A Cultural Exploration.”

The trip is scheduled for March 28 to April 5, 2017, and includes roundtrip airfare from Los Angeles (and other gateway cities).

Joining us for a segment of the trip will be Dr. Lee Skinner, CMC’s associate dean of the faculty and associate professor of Spanish. Dr. Skinner is an expert on Latin American literature and culture who will offer her colorful viewpoints on many of the issues we will be exploring during our trip.

Participation is extremely limited; we only secured 16 places for CMC, and we know that they will go quickly. Full information on our enlightening itinerary, including pricing, is available at If you are interested, you should contact our agent, Karen Goodrich at Travelstore VIP, by calling (949) 930-9288 or emailing
