Program Director Named for Silicon Valley Program

Steve Siegel ’87 has been named program director for The Claremont Colleges’ Silicon Valley Program.

Siegel, previously associate vice president for development, will begin his new role in The Robert Day School of Economics and Finance on Feb. 15. He will continue to participate in CMC’s advancement efforts from the Bay Area.

“The Silicon Valley Program is a wonderful extension of the good work we’re already doing in the areas of off-campus study, such as the Washington Program and various entrepreneurship enterprises,” Siegel says. “It’s really all about broadening the student experience.”

Siegel, a 1987 graduate of CMC, earned his MBA from the Drucker School at Claremont Graduate University in 1998 and joined the College’s administrative staff in 2000. He brings a wealth of experience in external relations and philanthropy in both the education and business sectors.

“I am enormously pleased that Steve will be leading the College’s efforts for our new Silicon Valley initiative,” says S. Brock Blomberg, dean of the Day School, the Robin and Peter Barker Professor of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, and a George Roberts Fellow.

According to Brian Dennis, director of administration and programs at the Day School, Siegel’s in-depth knowledge and wide experience will be hugely beneficial as the School makes its foray into Silicon Valley.

“We’re just thrilled to have Steve on board,” Dennis says.
