The CLU Difference – The Claremont Core®
Engagement Skills for Creating Sustainable Impact
In an increasingly interconnected world, leaders who want to make positive social change need to develop collaborative skills for reaching across traditional barriers of ideology, culture, and faith. CLU cultivates these capabilities in their graduate degrees through what they call the Claremont Core®, a sequence of four innovative courses in Mindfulness, Dialogue, Collaboration, and Change.
