Current Student Groups
Asian Pacific Islanders / American Association
This group exists to foster a sense of community and identity among persons of Asian or Pacific Islander heritage. We aim to support on another in our academic, spiritual, emotional, and professional endeavors, as well as to engage the community-at-large theologically, culturally, and socially. While many members are post-1st generation Asian Americans, the slash in the name reflects inclusion of Asians or Pacific Islanders who are not American, as well.
Claremont Korean Women's Association
This group was organized to represent, communicate, and serve the needs of Korean women students so as to clarify and strengthen their identity as Korean Christian women leaders, to develop a supportive Korean women’s community at Claremont School of Theology, and also to contribute to diversity on campus.
Claremont Sports Association
This group meets for regular intramural basketball, tennis, volleyball, Frisbee, and more to help strengthen the community, and to act as an important ministry to all students, faculty, and staff of Claremont School of Theology in need of a weekly refocusing.
This group gets together to encourage one another during the process to become chaplains. They come together for support, encouragement, and accountability for each other. They also invite existing chaplains from the outside the school to come and offer support and encouragement, participate in a speaker series, explain the process of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) training and network for future jobs.
This group gathers lesbian, bisexual, gay, transexed, transgendered, queer, questioning, intersexed and allies for dialogue and support.

Students from many traditions and paths both spiritual and academic join in solidarity and commitment to explore the intersection of faith, spirituality, social justice, and peacemaking through fellowship, prayer, spiritual practice, and action.
