The Kravis Prize team would like to extend warm wishes for a Happy New Year to all of the members of the Kravis Prize and Claremont McKenna College communities.

We look forward to kicking off the spring semester at CMC with a number of exciting upcoming events. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the founding of the Henry R. Kravis Prize in Leadership at CMC, an important milestone that we will celebrate in April alongside another important event: the twentieth anniversary of the College’s Kravis Leadership Institute.

In recognition of these events, we are so excited to host the past ten Kravis Prize recipient organizations, including early recipients like Fazle Abed’s Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee (pictured above) as well as more recent ones like Helen Keller International (decorated for the holidays, pictured below) for their upcoming retreat as we welcome them back to Claremont McKenna College.
