International Connect

I-Connect is a student-run international organization that fosters a supportive and inclusive community for international students and affiliates at Claremont McKenna College. This includes, but is not limited to, those who are not from the US and/or have lived abroad. I-Connect provides a space and support network where members can discuss the different struggles international students and identities may face. In addition, I-Connect hosts regular meetings, plans cultural activities, provides educational support, and leads career building events for their members and attendees. I-Connect works closely with I-Place, the international student office of the Claremont Colleges, to support CMC’s international identities with unique resources and administrative support.
