Our legacy is preparing students for responsible leadership in tomorrow’s world of affairs.

What will your legacy be?

The Campaign for CMC: Responsible Leadership honors our mission by endowing CMC’s distinctive model to develop future generations of responsible leaders in business, government and the professions through small class size, deep relationships with faculty, undergraduate research opportunities, a residential program focused on personal growth and well-being, and the signature programs at the heart of the CMC experience, including the Athenaeum, the CARE Center, and the Presidential Initiative on Anti-Racism and the Black Experience in America.
