The Kravis Lab for Civic Leadership fulfills Claremont McKenna College’s mission of preparing students for thoughtful and productive lives and responsible leadership in business, government, and the professions. We provide experiences and programming that build and enhance students’ civic readiness in preparation for their role as civic leaders. We foster creative, collaborative, and courageous public leaders by building the knowledge, habits, and skills needed to be thoughtful, engaged, and impactful members of a democratic society.

Our activities fall into three program areas – Civics, Citizenship & Sustainable Change
