June 19th is Juneteenth; in honor of this important holiday, CGU will be closed on Monday to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans on June 19th, 1865, when General Order 3 was issued by Major General Gordon Granger, proclaiming freedom for enslaved people in Texas. Originating in Galveston, Juneteenth has since been observed as a federal holiday in the United States. It is the oldest internationally celebrated commemoration of ending slavery in the United States and is a day to celebrate freedom, emphasizing education and achievement.

Today marks the first day of PRIDE MONTH! 🌈

Let's celebrate equity and support the LGBTQI+ campus community.

Happy Pride Month, CGU. 🔥✨


Memorial Day is a day to solemnly honor and commemorate all people who have died in U.S. military service.

Memorial Day began a few years after the Civil War in 1868. An organization of Union veterans established the holiday, then known as Decoration Day, as a time to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers with flowers.

From then until the present day, the holiday has been formally observed at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. In 2000, Congress passed the National Moment of Remembrance Act, which encourages Americans to keep a moment of silence at 3 p.m. local time to remember those who have died in service.

In 1971, Memorial Day was established as a federal holiday taking place on the last Monday in May.


CGU will be closed on Monday, May 29, in honor of Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is a federal holiday to honor and mourn the U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Two other days celebrate those who have served or are serving in the U.S. military: Armed Forces Day, and Veterans Day, which honors all those who have served in the United States Armed Forces.

The campus will reopen on Tuesday, May 30th.

Happy Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month .

Every May, we take extra time to celebrate Heritage Month by shining a light on AAPI graduate students and our campus community.

Do you know why Heritage Month is celebrated in May?

In 1977 the U.S. Congress (spearheaded by Representative Frank Horton of New York and Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawai'i) chose the first ten days of May to commemorate the history and contributions of Asian American communities here in the U.S. The week's observance became a month, the same month in which the first Japanese immigrants came to the U.S. in 1843. We also commemorate the transcontinental railroad's completion on May 10, 1869, as most workers who laid those railroad tracks were Chinese immigrants. And that's why AANHPI Heritage Month is in May.

To help raise funds for disaster relief efforts in Turkey, CGU alumna Arzu Kastal created a group art show, “You Are Not Alone!”

A free and public opening reception occurs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, April 14, at Claremont Heritage’s Ginger Elliott Gallery, 840 N. Indian Hill Blvd.

The gallery will remain open Saturday, April 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday, April 16, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The show will feature works by Kastal and about 30 other local artists, including Greg Rook, John Sollom, and Lee Hill.

Kastal hopes to raise as much money as possible to benefit organizations such as Direct Relief, Turkish Philanthropy Funds, and the Bridge to Türkiye Funds.

Kastal said the pieces at the Ginger Elliot show would be priced from $50 to $2,000. There will also be opportunities for attendees to donate directly to relief agencies.

With support from Claremont Heritage, its executive director David Shearer, and The Arts Area, the art show came together in a matter of weeks.

Earthquake damage in Turkey has been estimated at $84.1 billion.

CGU is thrilled to welcome keynote speaker, José Padilla, to the Realizing Equity Research Symposium. José held a 44-year legal career with California Rural Legal Assistance (CRLA) Inc., advocating for the rights of California’s farm worker and rural poverty communities. He oversaw the administration of one of the most respected Legal Services programs in the country. Through its Migrant Unit, CRLA’s legal work addresses the special needs of farm workers with cases focusing on pesticide exposure, housing, labor, education, civil rights, and environmental justice. Under José's leadership, CRLA created the Indigenous Farm Worker Project, to address the need of the indigenous migrant workers from southern Mexico. And, during José’s tenure, CRLA continued to pursue impact litigation and develop special projects of critical importance to farm worker women, and LGBTQ communities.

José Padilla attended Stanford University, UC Berkeley School of Law, and received an Honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters from Chapman University.

We are 4 days away from Realizing Equity: A Transdisciplinary Approach to Justice & Transformative Research Symposium to be held virtually on Friday, April 14th, 2023. Register online - link in bio.
