The mission of the Salvatori Center at Claremont McKenna College is to develop close relationships between students and scholars and to engage in the study of political philosophy and freedom as it relates to American Constitutionalism and the American Founding. It seeks to understand, and, if possible, to hearten, the moral, political and intellectual underpinnings of democracy in America.
