Elizabeth Hubert Malott Public Affairs Program

The Elizabeth Hubert Malott Public Affairs Program, established by the Malott family in memory of alumna and trustee Elizabeth Hubert Malott ’53, makes manifest her belief that a range of opinions about the world — especially opinions with which we may not agree, or think we do not agree — leads to a better educational experience. Although the primary audience for this annual program is the Scripps College student body, all members of the Claremont community and the general public are welcome.
