With $30 million already pledged, the Claremont Graduate School has officially begun a fund-raising drive to expand the school's faculty, campus facilities and student financial aid.
President John D. Maguire said Claremont's first fund-raising campaign, with a goal of $50 million, was inspired in large part by the school's 40% growth over the last 10 years. Maguire said that campus facilities "haven't stayed up with that growth." About $10 million of the funds raised so far have already gone into the construction of an academic computing facility.
Funds raised during the two-year campaign will also be used in a "modest but significant expansion" of the faculty, Maguire said. And, with further cuts in federal assistance expected, the fund will be used to make additional financial aid available to some of the graduate school's 790 full-time students.
The campaign is scheduled to end in December, 1987.
