Points of Pride

An understanding and appreciation of diverse peoples, cultures, and perspectives informs the intellectual framework on which Scripps mission is based. The College is committed to demonstrating that respect of differences among people is a prerequisite to achieving institutional excellence. It means that virtually every conversation will have many more than two viewpoints; it means that the underlying assumptions of every question will be probed.


Educator, publisher, and philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps dedicated her dreams as well as her resources to pioneering an innovative setting for women's education as an integral part of The Claremont Colleges. At ninety years of age, she still saw life in terms of possibility and spoke of the women's college that opened its doors in 1926 as her "new adventure."
