institutions in the United States. Today the University is a
highly-ranked, student-centered institution educating approximately
2,350 undergraduate and 1,150 graduate students to be imaginative
and contributing citizens of the world and to advance the frontiers
of knowledge and understanding through rigorous scholarship and
creative effort. This commitment to scholarship and inquiry
reflects the University's commitment to "challenge convention and
change our world" and to address issues of critical importance to
society. It is also reflected by Clark's many national and

as a top green campus, and for having a distinguished geography and
international development program. Clark has also been included in
the groundbreaking Colleges that Change Lives guide since it was
first published in 1996.
