Sustaining Foundations of Excellence
Carnegie Mellon is an outstanding performer. We run lean on administration, and we maximize our resources for comparative and competitive advantage.
Carnegie Mellon has never been about research for research’s sake. It is about research directed at responding with a sense of urgency to the emerging needs of our time.
This type of support allows schools and departments to marshal their resources in order to swiftly respond to new areas of research and education. These dollars also support student initiatives, student life and financial aid.
By supporting our ability to take full advantage of these opportunities, you help us meet the challenges of our world.
Our Goal: $200 Million to Support Emerging Opportunities
Fulfilling our goals for emerging opportunities at Carnegie Mellon would go toward:
- Unrestricted Current and Endowed Support
- Innovation Funds for the President, Provost and Deans
- Carnegie Mellon Fund and School-based Annual Giving Programs
- Carnegie Mellon Libraries
