History and Mission
In 1997, through a generous $50 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation, Keck Graduate Institute was born. KGI represents The Claremont Colleges’ first entry into graduate-level, application-based scientific research and education. It remains the only graduate institute in the country with this sole focus.
Leadership and Board of Trustees
KGI’s Board of Trustees, in conjunction with other advisory boards at KGI, keep the institute ever mindful of current features in the life sciences and health care industries. KGI’s leadership team is composed of the President, Deans, and Vice Presidents.
