INSTITUTES, PROGRAMS, AND AFFILIATES THE INSTITUTE FOR ANTIQUITY AND CHRISTIANITY The Institute for Antiquity and Christianity (IAC) is an interdisciplinary center for basic research in the origins and meaning of Western cultural heritage, focusing on the ancient Near East, the classical cultures of Greece and Rome, and the emergence of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Founded in 1967, the IAC is internationally renown for its research projects related to religion and culture in antiquity. IAC projects are directed by established scholars and represent the coordinated efforts of several hundred corresponding members throughout the United States and abroad. Research projects offer opportunities for qualified graduate students to participate as research assistants. Currently, the range of IAC Project topics includes text-oriented studies of Hebrew Bible, New Testament, Greco-Roman literary practices of pedagogy and persuasion, Coptic and Gnostic Christianities, models of piety in late antiquity, as well as archaeological and representational projects focused on material evidence for culture and religion in antiquity. In addition to its projects, the IAC research resources include artifact collections from antiquity, photographic and research archives connected to Nag Hammadi studies, and research library. The IAC realizes it commitment to collaboration and dissemination of research by sponsoring an annual public lecture series that attracts local, national and international scholars as well as through annual conferences, through publication of its monograph and essay series, and through its visiting scholar program. The research and publication resources of the IAC help to maintain Claremont Graduate University’s leadership in research and scholarship in the fields of religion, culture, and antiquity. THE JAMES A. BLAISDELL PROGRAMS IN WORLD RELIGIONS AND CULTURES The James A. Blaisdell Programs in World Religions and Cultures carries forward the vision of James A. Blaisdell, founder of The Claremont Colleges group plan and, in 1956, of The Claremont Institute for the Promotion of Studies in Religion. The purpose of the Institute was "To promote research, teaching, and education of an advanced nature in the various cultures of the world as they have influenced and been influenced by their religions and religious philosophies," Dr. Blaisdell was especially interested in the cultures of Asia and the future importance they would hold for Americans of the coming century. For the past decade the Blaisdell Program has been sponsoring a variety of seminars, conferences, lectures, and visiting scholars-in-residences all with the purpose of increasing cross- cultural and understanding of the origins and meaning of the culture and religions heritage of eastern and western civilization. The Blaisdell Programs are directed by Professor Margaret H. Dornish of Pomona College in consultation with an Advisory Council drawn from the faculties of all the Claremont Colleges. ORAL HISTORY PROGRAM The Oral History Program was established by Claremont Graduate University in 1962 to develop and preserve historical research materials through conducting tape-recorded interviews and acquiring related archival documents. The interviews are transcribed, reviewed by the person interviewed, and placed in final manuscript form for research use in the Special Collections Room of the Honnold Library. The interview tapes and supportive documentation are stored in the Oral History Program Office in The History Department, 710 North College Avenue, ext. 73667. Selected interview manuscripts are micropublished by The New York Times. A graduate course in oral history which qualifies as a research tool for students in American History is offered by the Oral History Program. The course can also be used to satisfy the research tool requirement in other fields with the consent of a student's supervising committee. This course is offered during the spring semester of each year. The program director is available to make presentations on oral history to graduate and undergraduate classes. The program office periodically publishes a catalog of annotated listings of its holdings and maintains an oral history file-card drawer in the Special Collections Room of the Honnold Library. WOMEN'S STUDIES JOURNAL Women's Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal, published six times a year, provides a forum for the presentation of scholarship and criticism about women in the fields of literature, history, art, sociology, law, political science, economics, anthropology, film, and the sciences.

MATHEMATICS CLINIC The CGU Mathematics Clinic involves teams of students, faculty, and visitors in work on real problems arising in industry and government. Among the more than one hundred and twenty funded projects undertaken in the Clinic's eighteen-year history have been problems dealing with aircraft design, management of physical plant, transistor analysis, and forest fire strategies. Some projects have been mathematically highly sophisticated, while others have been more qualitatively than quantitatively oriented. Other disciplines, such as economics, statistics, linguistics, and physics, have frequently been involved. The project teams are organized shortly before the beginning of the academic year. The work of each team consists of technical analysis, computer work, exposition, and liaison with the client. The Clinic traditionally invites anyone in The Claremont Colleges to participate on a formal or informal basis, and faculty are particularly welcome. The Clinic concept was pioneered at Harvey Mudd College, and close ties are still retained between the Math Clinic and similar organizations at HMC, particularly in the collaborative presentation of "Projects Day," a year-end event consisting of parallel sessions reporting on the year's research. Further information about the Clinic can be found in the CGU Bulletin or may be obtained from the Clinic Office (ext. 73376).

Bernard Biological Field Station is a CUC facility serving all of the faculties of The Claremont Colleges. Although it has been used mainly as a natural outdoor laboratory for teaching and research in the biological and ecological sciences, it has also served individuals in chemistry, environmental science, political science, art, theater, anthropology, cinematography and education. A number of local schools and organizations as well as other colleges and universities have used the grounds. The close proximity of the Station to the campuses, bounded as it is by Foothill Boulevard and Mills and College Avenues, makes it an incomparably useful and unique facility for higher educational purposes -- almost certainly unmatched in urban North America. The grounds occupy approximately 85 acres of alluvial outwash in the L.A. Basin of the once widespread coastal sage scrub plant community which clothed the area before development. A small, 20-foot-deep lake is separated from a marsh by an island which also provides nesting security for aquatic birds. Together with several other man-made temporary aquatic habitats, the lake has added considerable variety to our ecological communities. A small museum, various outdoor pens for holding research animals, and an outdoor laboratory which provides water, electricity and bench space, round out the facilities of the Bernard Biological Field Station. Station policy is determined by an intercollegiate committee of faculty users chaired by the Station's director. Faculty members are invited to submit proposals to the Director or to the Field Manager for uses of the Station to meet specific disciplinary interests. Either of these individuals will be pleased to show you the area and discuss your needs.
