The Claremont Colleges Travel to Asia

This spring, a delegation from The Claremont Colleges visited Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Beijing to meet with alumni and parents, as well as key government and academic leaders in the region. The group, which included presidents, deans, faculty, staff, and trustees from the five undergraduate colleges, the two graduate schools, and the university consortium executive office, visited 17 institutions of higher education representing a range of disciplines and programs. Scripps was represented by Michael Deane Lamkin, Frankel Professor of Music and former dean of faculty, and Irene Tang, biology professor in Joint Science.

The trip is a continuation of Scripps’ efforts to expand its international outreach and exchange programs, and follows last summer’s successful visit by members of the Music Department to Xiamen University.
