Pitzer's Native Summer Pipeline to College

About Pitzer College

Where is Pitzer College?

Pitzer College is in Claremont, California and is part of the seven educational institutions that constitute the Claremont Colleges: Pomona College, Claremont Graduate University, Scripps College, Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College and the Keck Graduate Institute for Applied Life Sciences.

Why Pitzer College?

Pitzer College produces engaged, socially responsible citizens of the world through an academically rigorous, interdisciplinary liberal arts education emphasizing social justice, intercultural understanding and environmental sensitivity. The meaningful participation of students, faculty and staff in college governance and academic program design is a Pitzer core value. Our community thrives within the mutually supportive framework of The Claremont Colleges, which provide an unsurpassed breadth of academic, athletic and social opportunities.

These values have created a culture at Pitzer which we believe will carry through to the Pipeline to College experience. Engaging in a community where these ideals are functionally put into praxis in an effective manner will ingrain these core values in the participants in a way that cannot otherwise be duplicated. It is the experience rather than a theoretical explanation of the importance of these values so vital to community engagement which Pitzer has adopted as Core Values that make Pitzer a unique place for such a program to exist.

Pitzer College Core Values:

• Social Responsibility
• Intercultural Understanding
• Interdisciplinary Learning
• Student Engagement
• Environmental Sustainability
