The Claremont Colleges are a consortium of small private colleges located in Claremont, in eastern Los Angeles County, approximately 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
Founded in 1925, the consortium consists of five undergraduate and two graduate colleges:
The Claremont Colleges have a total enrollment of about 4,400 undergraduate and 2,100 graduate students. Students share a common library, cross-register for classes, share social and athletic activities — particularly between the “5 Cs” (the five undergraduate colleges). Administratively, the colleges also share HR and other services through the Claremont University Consortium.
Maps of the Claremont Colleges can be found at the Claremont University Consortium website.
While KGI is physically separated from the remaining six colleges, it seeks to leverage its ties and build bridges to the remaining colleges. KGI most often collaborates with its sister colleges in areas of science, engineering and business.
Undergraduate students from Harvey Mudd and Joint Sciences Department (serving Claremont McKenna, Pitzer and Scripts) have participated in KGI classes and activities, including the Team Masters Project. KGI students often cross-register in MBA classes at the Drucker School of Management, and Drucker faculty teach at KGI.
