Explore the Future of Town-Gown Relations at a Claremont City Council Candidates Forum.
Claremont and the colleges that bear its name have a long and enduring relationship, one that has been beneficial to all. Over the decades, town-gown relations have also had occasional up and downs.
As we think about the next era for Claremont and The Claremont Colleges, what will be the roles and responsibilities of city leaders, community members and the colleges? What priorities do the colleges and city leadership share? Where do their priorities differ and how might college and city leaders navigate those differences? What are the shared values that have made Claremont one of the most desirable cities to live and work in, and the colleges some of the top institutions of higher education in the world?
We’ll explore these questions and many more in a question and answer format moderated by Kathryn Dunn, editor of the Claremont Courier. Questions may be submitted to the moderator in advance using this confidential online form.
Coffee and light breakfast provided.
