At this reflective time of year, we have much to be thankful for! As we close 2019, the strength of our CLU community has never been more evident. Each day through our work, we celebrate the memory of David C. Lincoln, our late founder and benefactor. We would not be the innovative institution we are today without his and CLU’s first president, Dr. Jerry Campbell’s, vision – to create compassionate leaders through socially conscious education.
We are honored to recognize the significant accomplishments of our students in their course pursuits and critical action projects; our faculty with their positive mentorship in and out of CLU’s virtual classrooms; and our staff, all of whom are dedicated to making the CLU experience the best it can be.
We are also proud to have just presented “The Art of Peacemaking”, a discussion at the Hillel at UCLA on November 10th involving how faith-based communities can promote inclusivity, tolerance and respect for diversity. This important topic was hosted by two of our CLU Leaders, Dr. Keith Burton, Faculty Chair for the Peace and Social Justice program, and Rabbi Mel Gottlieb, long-standing and founding Board Member of the University.
Lastly, we couldn’t be more thankful and excited for our upcoming move in December to our new headquarters at 150 1st Street in Claremont Village. The new space includes a complete multi-media studio, allowing us to provide innovative curriculum content to enhance our student experience, as well as feature thought leaders in social justice and ethical leadership within the greater community. We hope you all will have the opportunity of visiting us in the future.
May you take the time to enjoy family and friends this Thanksgiving.
