CMC's strong grounding in the liberal arts, together with its emphasis on economics, government, and international relations, attracts students who approach education pragmatically and who intend to make a difference in the world. With this broad-based foundation graduates leave CMC well prepared for the challenges of the 21st century. Many go on to pursue careers in law, business, government, foreign service, international relations, public policy, museum administration, science and education, or to pursue graduate study. The College's cutting-edge research institutes provide students unprecedented opportunities to work alongside their professors and discover how what they learn in the classroom links to life in the world behond. The world comes to Claremont McKenna through a vibrant and renowned speakers series in which world leaders, thinkers, artists and visionaries visit campus through the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum and other public programming.

Day, the Founder and Chairman of The TCW Group, Inc., pledged a $200 million personal gift to establish the Robert Day School of Economics and Finance and its unique programs.

The Business Council is a voluntary association of business leaders whose members meet several times a year for the free exchange of ideas both among themselves and with thought leaders from many sectors. In its most fundamental form, the Council seeks to foster understanding through discussion. It promotes learning, best practice sharing and networking by its members with a view to making a contribution to our society, the global economy and to business generally. Since its founding more than 75 years ago, The Business Council membership has consisted of a group of current or former chief executive officers from a broad range of companies. All major industries are represented among the members of The Business Council. Because schedule demands on senior business executives are extensive, the Council provides an especially valuable opportunity to discuss major subjects in a broader ranging forum than is normally available in the course of business activities. As part of its process, the Council invites leaders in government, politics, academia, science, medicine, technology and other sectors to address the Council and to participate in its discussions. Council members hope that these discussions result in better understanding by their invited guests as well as by the members themselves. Today, the Council meets three times a year in a collegial atmosphere to share and explore ideas.As a gathering of peers from many fields, the Council is entirely an educational and deliberative forum. It never takes positions as an organization and does not advocate any policy or course of action. Individual members sometimes do present their own views in public discussions. But they do so as individuals, rather than as representatives of the Council.

Pritzker Foundation Our family foundation reflects our values: education, health & fitness, art & culture and commitment to community. Our investments follow those values and we view our giving through a particular lens: enriching the life experiences of Chicago’s children. Our foundation continually searches for innovation, in all of our core investment areas, which will make a profound difference in children's lives. We want to support programs with strong evidence of success and test new programs, which we will learn from and make adjustments as we go. Our interest in education runs deep. We believe a quality public education is the foundation of our democracy. We have committed much of our civic lives to innovative education efforts - from principal leadership development to training high quality teachers to expanding successful charter school models. Fitness is central to our family life. ChicagoRun sprouted from our desire to confront the childhood obesity epidemic and get Chicago’s children moving. Through ChicagoRun, over 10,000 young people now run as part of their daily activity. We continue to place a high priority on well-being and look for strategies and programs that will encourage children to become more health conscious and physically active. Finally, our family is enthusiastic about contemporary art and culture. We believe that art and culture enhances the understanding and enjoyment of life and our foundation seeks ways to bring this joy to others. We hope that focusing on education, health & fitness, and art & culture for Chicago's young people will pay enormous dividends in the years ahead. We look forward to the journey.
