The Claremont College Consortium: Each of the Claremont Colleges has its own student body, faculty, administration, campus, curricular emphasis, and individual style and purpose. And yet, the colleges form a mutually beneficial partnership to offer joint academic programs and cross-registration in courses, to cultivate special curricular strengths on which the others may draw, to encourage contact and cooperation among faculty and students from different campuses, and to combine physical facilities and extracurricular programs.
