The mission of Claremont Lincoln University is to be a place where students learn how to treat others as they would like to be treated. Students learn the skills necessary to understand differences among religions, governments, other organizations, and individuals; how to respect those differences; and how to cooperate and collaborate with those of different viewpoints to resolve problems between them peacefully without violence. Our students will integrate self-knowledge with critical perspectives and contemporary skills to create sustainable social change-how to implement the golden rule. Claremont Lincoln University embeds the golden rule in the Claremont Core® which teaches the skills of mindfulness, dialogue, collaboration, and change.
